This is an ongoing thread started like any other, the difference is at some point Beer was mentioned and a small group of Calgary climbers met at a pub for a pint. As fate would have it the next week more climbers met, then more and it became a weekly event. The weekly pub night has become a forum to plan trips, weekends, tell tall tales of past adventures, talk about routes we would like to climb, new routes we have climbed, routes that we flat out got denied on, and of course drink beer and banter about life in general.
To call us a "Club" would be a little misleading and would give our organizational skills more credit than they may deserve. Rather we are more of an eclectic loose knit group of local climbers who strive to explore the Canadian Rockies in our own way… telling tall tales of exaggerated glory around the campfire or at the Pub afterwards.





MacGillivary Slabs in the Bow Valley - Route: Pixie

Has anyone here done this route? Rockguide? Skinner? Anyone?
We went up there a couple weekends ago... I could follow the line as described in the book, started up the first pitch and Shit I couldn't find any good pro at all. I could see a few good spots for pins, but left them at home that day. Am I missing something here? Is it really just that run out, like the whole pitch run out? Does it get better higher up? I saw some variations, but the rock didn't look any better for Pro.

I ended up down climbing the pitch and taking off down the drainage for a Canyoneering-esk decent and some craging elsewhere.



Edit: For title change.
