Anything with a good partner. Having the right partner makes climbing anything worthwhile.

Fav trad routes... well I'd have to say the long ones. Almost any style as long as they are long.

Example:

Now that we have the method out of the way, I can say that the bugs have, do, and always will call to me until the day I climb them, maybe longer.

Alpine rocks. Specific techniques (finger, hand, etc.) are not as important.

It's in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada. The route is 500m to 600m long depending on where you start climbing on the slab. Then you have a 4 class ridge to traverse overlooking the length of the slab, followed by some 3rd/4th class terrain and more elevation gain before you obtain the Decent slopes. The elevation gain is around the 3300' mark from the car.

Yep. And you've definitely never climbed at the Gunks, or you wouldn't have left out faces and roofs.

My favorite kind of trad climb is the kind where it grabs me by the balls and doesn't let go for many pitches. The kind where I can remember all of the climb, after only having been up it once, years later, because it's practically burned into my retinas through fear-induced concentration - that's my favorite kind of trad climb.

GO

Those are some great pics. If I ever get north of the border I'll have to give that a go. Smile
