You know of anyone who can confirm that? Sly



Really though, it did look insanely hard.

Now all we need is some COLD temps in the hills. Cold and cool, overnights in the -10 range and daytime in the -2 to 5 range in the valley bottom. Ice forms up fast then.

Hey there, nmcan84.. we're not ignoring you, really, you just seem to have caught everyone in that mental transition state of limbo, caught between a rock and frozen place.

The time of year where we typically charge off into the mountains and take the gear walkabout, shoot photos of what's *almost* or *sort of* in (or what just fell off) Once our brain gets iced up, it's really tough to get anyone to consider rock again as an alternative to slush. :[shrug]:

But I say.. Screw it, lets just go do a nail-up on some choss pile! We don't need no stinkin ice, or even what most might consider actual rock. Warm clothes, a big hammer, and maybe some liquid courage in case we have a moment of weakness and realize wtf we are doing?


I want to stick my Tomahawk in the rock!
(should be a t-shirt)


Brenden, ya think those might come in handy on the ice (or lack of) occasionally?

Don't want to sound like a dick or anything but if your really into it and can't find someone go solo some of the easier soild routes on yam. When I can't find anyone to head out I find that's always nice and gives you a quick workout. I have found on a nice paced day not to fast or slow you can car to car windy or easy street in less than 3 hrs. I would take you up on going out but I am tied up for thur and fri

Well after my third daughter was born a week and a bit ago I was taken off house arrest and headed up the parkway yesterday to do Asteroid Alley, some breaking of trail up to knee deep penetration but only in the deepest part. Up and down track in (down with the usual drunken sailor walk), you can avoid the glacier by staying low and getting close to the headwall and the only holes that we found were mainly filled in, step across the scrund was easy as was the approach slopes. The bottom mixed pitches are thin to nonexistent in which we took the left hand gully on poor pro and very loose for 80m pitch, I think the normal route heads up the right side. Crux pitch has no ice for the first half although very fun pitch, one of the better mixed pitchs I have ever done although a very tight squeeze for my self in which I became stuck a few times and hard to swing, my partners who are a bit slimer didnt have the same issues aside from my belay placement just below top chockstone. We got to the last pitch before we rapped down because of time and party of 3. Great route should be done more often.

It pains me to read some of the threads on rc.com

You turn up at a crag, no guide book, with a 50m rope..

Trying to actually get some work done.

Hungover was Saturday. Ice hunting, new line scouting, and actual climbing were on Sunday.

Now it's work work work because I didn't win the lotto on the Friday night draw.Mad

Were in "The Doldrums" happens every year.

The Doldrums were notorious with sailors because this region's periods of deadly calm could trap ships for days or weeks on end as they waited for enough wind to power their sails. The doldrums also means deppresed.

Why don't you come out for a beer with us one of these Wednesdays ? We're still pretty motivated when it comes to throwing back a few Trad yano Wink

Drive in on the 1A (Crowchild Tr once you're in the city). Just past the lights at the end of UofC campus, and just before the lights at the Stamps' football stadium take a left into Nick's.

People typically show up around 8-ish.

That "ish means someone 'could' be there by 7:30, or it could be till 8:30.

I might me down and out for the count tonight... swine flu or something like that Crazy
