Hey there! I'm super psyched to try climbing at Squamish since watching that film Western Gold (if you don't know what I'm talking about check out the trailer here: http://vimeo.com/39651458 or download here: http://savagefilms.net/store/ )

I'm more of a moderate boulderer though, so I'm wondering about V3-V6 climbs (that aren't crazy highballs like the guys in this film do). Any suggestions?

Also - what time of year is best? July? I don't want to get rained out and I hear the weather can be sketchy....

Thanks!!!

BREAK FROM THE RANKS OF THE PAD PEOPLE!

"The Pad People are a growing cult of nomadic forrest-dwellers who, much like ants, have an incredible strength to weight ratio and sleep under rocks. They often carry their beds on their backs, and own upwards of twelve toothbrushes at any one time. A direct descendant from the Traditionalist, and a cousin of the Sport Weenie."

- Quoted from Uni_Jim's bestseller Mountain Ceatures and How to Identify Them

Ah the pad people. I remember sitting on the top of climbs in J-tree watching tribes of the pad people marching through the desert. My buddy and I would occasionally add a chapter to the chronicles of the pad people.

Not that there's anything wrong with bouldering, I've been doing a bit of it myself lately, but there's more to climbing than little rocks.

ok ok, so I asked the same question about red rocks b/c I have friends here saying the same thing! Stop bouldering! get up high!

apparently i should be dropping my pad and joining the light in the sky? lol

apparently there is a great guidebook for the boulders - I'll check that out.

the bouldering in Squish is world class, but so is the crack climbing. Just saying it would be well worth your while to grab a rope and scab up the back of you hands!
