Amazing Levitation

Average Rating = 4.50/5 Amazing Levitation

The faint image of my belayer, who is quite comfortably laid back on a ledge and not actually performing a miraculous display of levitation is not really on Crescent Crack, but there is no option for exploratory climbing. We were just messing around at night (obviously), trying to link up some small cracks we had noticed during the day. It was pretty much all aid except for one move over a buldge (and into the black void) that I wasn't really up to by headlamp anyways.

The Kid

Average Rating = 3.25/5 The Kid

Mount Athabasca Approach over blackend summer ice as a result of the relentless wind depositing fine moriane on the glacier, in your eyes, ears, nose, and even your mouth. However.. you can wash the black grit down with a couple of cheeseburgers and a coke at the Saskatchewan River Crossing for a mere $27.00

*young_gun* on

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".

And it Rained.. (again)

Average Rating = 0.00/5 And it Rained.. (again)

Every weekend we pack and head out climbing. Every weekend it rains, we get soaked and bail, come home, dry out the gear, re-pack and do it all over again. One day it will stop raining, and we'll be there!

Not one, Not two,..but THREE FLAT TIRES

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Not one, Not two,..but THREE FLAT TIRES

Even though I carry 2 spare tires, it wasn't enough this time. On the bright side, we did get to meet Ranger Richard who stopped by to offer assistance, which turned into a half hour conversation about climbing and his sons' crazy bouldering antics.

A Bushwhack Approach to West MacG

Average Rating = 0.00/5 A Bushwhack Approach to West MacG

*young_gun* (my son) who just turned 13 looks for an easier way while bushwhacking across the slopes at the base of the west end of MacGillivray Slabs. This was our third trip to the area in 3-weeks where we had been completing 3 new routes. Working on 2 new routes simultaneously takes a lot of work and gear, as you can see from his over-stuffed haul bag which weighed only 15 lbs. less then him. It's actually my plan to train him to carry heavy loads so when I get older he can carry everything while I stroll behind with a little day pack, *g*

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 Essentials

Average Rating = 0.00/5 The Essentials

Yes it's a roll of TP, but not for what you think. We had all picked up and passed around the same cold. It was very annoying having to blow your nose every 10 minutes while on the rocks. I just like the picture, obviously not for it's technical merits.

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.

Wet-n-Slimy

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Wet-n-Slimy

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

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Boulder recon

We had caught a glimpse of these through the trees thinking we were making some great discovery, only to find out later that they had been not only climbed but were and still are listed in the "Kananaskis Obscure" guide - http://www.tabvar.org/Kan_obs.pdf

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.

Bearspaw Bluffs

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Bearspaw Bluffs

This shot is looking towards the north end of the cliffs. To the left (out of the picture) is where the main and tallest sections of sandstone cliffs are located. As you can see there is just tons of caves, pockets, and overhangs. Some of these overhangs have ridiculous handholds that are just in the right places and couldn't be more suited for climbing
