Oh... the edge

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Oh... the edge

Me following Marc's simul-climbing lead, note all the slack in my hands. Don't simul climb unless you're like a dumbass, eh? It's dangerous. No seriously, it can speed things up. Anyways, going up the thumb in less than spectacular weather. Original plan was for the whole hand traverse but rapped off after completing the thumb. It was hailing. In July! Photo by Marc Dufresne

1st Sella Tower

Average Rating = 0.00/5 1st Sella Tower

Here's a photo of the 1st Sella Tower. The obvious right facing corner is the Trenker Crack, a great 5.7-5.8 route. On the left you can see the chimney which appears like a big crack. This is the easiest route up the tower.

Two climbers in the chimney

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Two climbers in the chimney

A swedish couple we met later at camp in this chimney route, which looked like it entailed at least hard 5.9 climbing, I'm unsure of the route, and don't have the guide, so if anyone can fill the info in more, I'll update. They said it was a solid route, with good gear, and easy moves.

Kurt on our traverse

Average Rating = 2.00/5 Kurt on our traverse

Came up with a pretty nice little traverse line on this side, with lots of pinches, crimpers and opposing angles. Tricky feet to boot!

The tower

Average Rating = 3.50/5 The tower

Our tower of fun for an afternoon. Kurt Saggers and I found it and played around for a while. This was on a gorgeous day, but it was super windy at the same time. It kept threatening to blow us off the tower when we were climbing.

Me doing my thing

Average Rating = 4.04/5 Me doing my thing

Me climbing a wicked old watch tower. Beautiful day, cold wind though. Bloody strong too! It kept trying to rip me off. I got up halfway, and the wind was getting to be too intense for me to commit wholeheartedly. No crashmats, and only one spotter, but from that height, what would he really do anyways right? Also, we'd left rope, etc, in the car and it would have been a sketch downclimb. A cheers goes out to Kurt Saggers for taking the pic, spotting me, and telling me not to be a fool and go all the way up. Man I wanted to though.

Kurt goin' up

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Kurt goin' up

Kurt Saggers playing on the watch tower. Neither of us bailed that day, which is a good thing as the landing consisted of thorn bushes to the left. I wanted to top out so badly, but this man was for once the cool-headed one, and told me to chill, and not risk it. One day I'm going back, when it's not so damn windy, and climbing the tower with. And setting up a rappel so I can get back down.

Lookin for feet at Rigaud

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Lookin for feet at Rigaud

This is a shot of me (Nik MacLean aka TallNik) at Rigaud, an hour west of downtown Montreal. Short sport lines exist here (12.5m), but the rock is beautiful, the view good, and friends are a plenty. My friend Jeremy took the shot, and Ian is on belay. This shot was taken in Mid-April, and we were super lucky with the weather. Probably around 18C-20C (65F?)

Anthony Leading the slabs

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Anthony Leading the slabs

Buttshot, but what a great cliff, great weather, and easy slabs! The 5.8s up higher are a cinch if solid at the grade. I recommend the Diagonal Direct variation at 5.9
