Skaha-clip ups and cracks Date of Climb:
3/27/2004 Trip Report:
Went to Skaha with Mer and Steve. Climbed a lot of gaper routes. Steve and Mer played rope gun
I hardly led anything. Drank a bunch of beer, ate a bunch of bagels. Sunny and cold on Saturday sunny and warm on Sunday. Not too busy at all. One tick and no rattlesnakes. Found a #3 Wild Country Rock lying in some bushes (booty
). Saw some actual good climbers attempting some actually hard type routes but successfully avoided anything too hard ourselves.
Successful excuses used: "You should lead this cause its a classic and it is your fist time at Skaha, I wouldn't want to blow your chance to onsight it."
"It is too windy to climb this balancy arete - I might get blown off"
"Let's go climb in the sun instead."
"It's a perfect style for you to lead."
"If we walk out this way maybe we will see a rattlesnake." Gear Notes:
