Big Blue Sky

Average Rating = 5.00/5 Big Blue Sky

Hanging out on a beak as I pull through the seam on the east roof at 5-Mile Rappel in Alberta, Canada. This A2 seam sports vertical KB's, partially driven shallow angles, beaks, and hooks among other gear through a compact sandstone/pseudo-quartzite horizontal roof... or you could stack and tie off your KB's for that A3 with ground fall potential feel.

Average Rating = 0.00/5 *young_gun* on "Spider Grove"

You know there some photo's that just don't warrant 40 characters. Since the climber is in the title, the phoptgrapher is me, and the suggestion of a route decription, is in the... umm "Route Description".

Turn left on Hwy 68, drive under the rainbow..

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Turn left on Hwy 68, drive under the rainbow..

It's not a great shot, in fact it's not even good shot as far as photo's go, but.. I was in the right place at the right time and thought it was pretty kewl how it lined up perfectly over the Lusk Creek bridge. It was a pretty neat way to enter Sibbald Trail after hours of driving in the rain.

The Retro photo -op

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Retro photo -op

A nice, hard fist crack on a boulder along Sibbald Corners, only 2 minutes from the car uphill. All the gear is very old and should be locked away forever.

The Overhang

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Overhang

The rock here is not typical of Alberta limestone. Being very solid and smooth in texture, it resembles quartzite even in color.

Myself up top and Ryan below sending me up stuff as I replace some old bolts that were put in in the 70's. It had been raining for a week and was wet, slimy, and super slippery.

Jugging Das Route

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Jugging Das Route

young_gun jugging over the overhang of "Das Route" at 5-mile Rappel. Low quality snap shot, but I still like it because he looks like he is levitating (and the fact that he was only 11 at the time).

Boulder recon

Sibbald Meadows - Bouldering Area

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Sibbald Meadows - Bouldering Area

This is an outcrop on the west side of the Sibbald Meadows Pond (Day Use Area). Although well hidden they are only 2 minutes from the road and are described in the "Kananaskis Obscure" guide as area "A" - -[ http://www.tabvar.org/Kan_obs.pdf ]- - We weren't actually climbing this day, just checking them out on our way through as you can tell from the footwear.----- Match (in his flip-flops) and young_gun (in his canvas high-tops) pulling on the moss that had filled in most of the cracks after an unusually wet spring.
