Hey Shawn. Definitely show up at the pub on a Wednesday night when you can. Even "bolt clipping sport climber(s)" are welcome. No guarantee a couple of us won't try to make a Big Rock Traditional drinking Trad climber out of ya..


We're pretty easy to find and get along with.

I am now officially a criminal in Canada. My first bust came about ten years ago for not wearing my seatbelt as a passenger, threatened with serous time as I had no id on me either, even though I was not driving. My latest bust (of many) was today for not wearing a helmet on my wifes moped going all of 40km in Canmore (so much for trying to be green, back in the 3/4 ton diesel)...of course in Utah (conservative Mormon country), I can and do drive my Harley down the interstate at 120km, no helmet required....live and let live.....all I can say is that obviously most Canadians would be shocked at what real crime is....lol, just imagine a cop pulling me over on my bike, truck, whatever in Vegas after a climb at Red Rocks for seatbelt or helmet violations.......they just don't have the time, CA, NV, UT, CO, nowhere do I get busted for this kind of stuff. So the "Queen" requests my presence once more at her "bench" eh? $300? Mark, I might skip bail on this one buddy...better get the best of the rest of me this summer.

One of many.
What can I say, when it works, ya don't mess with it.

I did get one of those Dragon cams last summer... as a replacement for my old #3 Camalot, thanks to Juan! Seriously, the comic relief was worth loosing the cam and the replacement was worth the bivi.

Location: BVX Camp in the Ghost.

Unfortunately it's BYOB this year... might be good for my climbing though, I should be relatively hangover free on Saturday and Sunday. Monkey

We climbed a variation of the SW Face and Cory Crack. Linking up some more interesting climbing than simply climbing CC. I would say the crux pitch as we climbed it was about 5.10a A0 (1 Hook).
As for that pic... I believe it's taken somewhere on Cory Crack about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up the face. The face is a little longer than quoted in Green Bible (Glen's book of lies).

Voting in an hour (or 3 more cups of coffee) then we're heading out.

Headed out to Kananaskis. I'm thinking either Wasootch, or Lorette Slabs if I can convince Juan to cross the river... he's a little shorter than most, rivers are proportionately deeper.

Road trip starting next week!

Heading to Devils Tower and the Needles for a Birthday Road Trip. WWWWWWWWWHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Don't have too much fun waiting for the ice to freeze up in Alberta without me. Hahhahahahaha!


Laugh



If you're really looking for ice, I hear Shooting Galley has seen a couple accents already with "somewhat ok" conditions. Which likely means better conditions than my fist 3 days of Ice last October, so you should be able to find some pro and likely belays too.
