Well tomorrow's plans abruptly changed. Anyone have tomorrow off and want to climb. Drop me a line by about 8am. My gear is already packed.

Otherwise I'll probably just go solo something.

Nobody called or dropped a line so I climbed Cascade Falls. Great route, but I thought it would be steeperBlush

Get it while the Avi conditions are good! On to the BEER Beer

The Indifferent WI3/3+

Me Climbing, Nathan filming

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - left side - WI4

Me.... shamelessly posing.

Professor Falls** WI4
Dr. Chris leading the final pitch. Somehow I didn't get any pics of myself that day.
[inline "Professor Falls -resized.JPG"]

Cascade Falls** WI3 300m (solo)
I was solo, kind of hard to get pics of yourself, but here's the before/after. 2 1/2 hours truck to truck including the hour of waiting and socializing I did on the climb.
Before:
At the top looking down:

Guinness Gully* WI4
Final pitch. Dr. Chris Belaying, me climbing


Wicked Wanda*** WI4+


Dirty Dave belaying, me climbing.

I know Grant posted on Gravsports that it's only "WI 4", but that's total horseshit if you opt to climb it in proper style by ascending the mushrooms behind the pillar to reach the pillar. That gives you a full on WI4+ line.

As mentioned, the 2010 BVX Winter Beer Review is coming up fast.


The 2010 BVX Winter Beer Review is set to run January 15-17.


Yes, the camp that lead to Richard's infamous accent of The Eagle, Paul getting a Hummer stuck, most of us climbing hung over 2 or 3 days in a row, and the introduction of "Dirty Dave" to the group....


It's happening again!!!!!!

This years camp will feature:

-A Canvas Yurt - wood stove heated (thanks to Scott Montgomery)
-Canvas Wall Tent - wood stove headed too (thanks to Dave Duncan)
-The Traditional Keg (seriously it's a keg of Big Rock Traditional)
-Trips lead by some of the more famous infamous, members of the BVX (I hear one or two trip leaders may be offering complimentary chopper rides upon completion of the route Sly)
-Door Prizes
-Draw Prizes
-Working on a Chili dinner for one of the nights too
-And more fun than Barrel full of Drunken Monkeys


Sponsors to date for this years festivities include:

KNUCKLE BASHER ICE FESTIVAL
http://www.knucklebasher.com/

ADVENTURE MEDICAL KITS
http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/

HAMMERHEAD GRAPHICS
http://www.hammerheadgraphics.ca/

SPIRIT WEST - OUTDOOR APPROACH
http://www.outdoorspirit.ca/

WICKED GRAVITY
http://www.wickedgravity.com/

And more to come.



Camp location will be the same as last year.
Here is the map for those who can't remember the location of the BVX Camp:

Working on it. Will let everyone know when we've figured out everyone's out of pocket expenses. Like I mentioned it's a break even goal... just to cover the costs.

Most, was closer to all of us, at least all who weren't on the injury, honey do, or desperate for cash lists. Even some on the injury list were there...

But, about the time you were posting, I do believe this is the state most of us were in:

Most of us probably still don't look much better, but I'm sure we'll be fine by pub night!

I just talked to Dirty Dave on the phone, and he is proposing a post-Beer Review slide show at his house this Saturday.

I guess we'll decide on Wednesday if that works for everyone.. or the majority (it never works for *everyone*).

It's really just another excuse to drink some more..

OK I'm in Tongue

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to mention that I'll be bringing in my photos on Wed. Hopefully I can pick up a memory stick tonight, if not, I'll bring in my laptop having uploaded all the pictures on it so if you want the pics and have a memory stick bring it along!

Cheers,

Hanife
