joys of ice climbing

Average Rating = 0.00/5 joys of ice climbing

This pic. was taken at the top of snivelling gully. Me and my inexperienced partner initially planned on doing the left weeping wall until I got sick. We got in this after I recuperated. The route went without incident until the last pitch. I new from experience that the ice was bad, but my partner wanted to press on. Despite his lack of experience, he had more guts than me. Unfortunately, he did not know to avoid hooking while placing a screw. He ended taking about a 45 footer onto an old v-thread. Miracously it held. After finishing the pitch on pure adrenaline he belayed me up and I got the only injury of the whole incident when I dislodged a basketball piece of ice.

bouldering on the weeping wall

Average Rating = 0.00/5 bouldering on the weeping wall

We had some bad luck with finding a decent moderate multipitch. Started at the waterfowl gullies, but ice was not in. We ended the day here. This pic was taken after most paties were gone. I didn't notice the contrats of light/shadow until I was walking back to the car. I wanted my partner to solo into the light, but it was a little too high.

Clouds around Mount Chephren

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Clouds around Mount Chephren

This photo was tkaen from an ice route in the Waterfowl gullies area (can't rememder which one). It wasn't until I started rappelling off the route that I noticed the awesome view. Two hard routes go up this face. My partner saw headlamps of a party bailing off of this face several nights before in snow storm. The steep walls of Howse peak can be seen on the left.

onsite of clean crack

Average Rating = 3.50/5 onsite of clean crack

This photo was taken in the spring of 2003. We were not sure about the access of this area so we asked a workers in a local climbing shop. They ensured us that it was open. We already had a great weekend up until now, it seemed that everyone thought Squish was going to be rained out and went to Smith instead. There were only 3 cars in the chief parking lot. One belonged to an aid climber soloing Uncle bens, another a boulderer who seemed just as confused of the lack of people, and the third was us. With ascents of numerous 3 star climbs like apron strings, exasperator, and st. Vitus, this was the perfect way to cap an excellent long weekend. This is not me onsiting, but my bro. I myself flailed at the exact spot he is pausing to chalk up.

I saw a pic of someone climbing this once and thought it would be a cool warm up. Yeah right! My buddy hiked it, but it was no go for me.

This lonely boulder sits in the provincial park campsite.The steep side of this rock has had graffiti painted on it so it does make the rock slippery.

Here is Rachelle on Up from the fire.This short route is on the large Fireside boulder at the base of the canyon .This is a nice place to go when it is hot as its shady and cool.The route itself is short but is thin and intense until the anchors.

v3 arete

Average Rating = 0.00/5 v3 arete

This is the V3 arete next to "overhung". It is a shorter, easier and more contrived problem than the technical neighbour.
