Loc: Collapsing State Vector
Climb: 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:
gear
bolts
draws
beer
Subaru
friend's house for cush bivy

Approach Notes:
Subaru
trail
the famous stairs (now half gone)

Hey, you forgot the old standby excuse "I led it last time" and the new and unusual "those pigeons seem really aggressive."

Geoff on Skin of a Lion GWW



Kai on Wings of Desire


Feathered booty on Mrs Palmer.





Two shots of Gangbang at GWW



Not a very good shot of Steve pretending to be Sylvester Stallone on "The Dream"



Don't ever let them tell you there are no slabs at Skaha.

Great trip report and photos. Skaha is such a fun place to climb! I do believe the poison ivy is "out" (I've got the typical rash), and rattlesnakes will be any day now.

"not too hard stuff"!???

man, do I feel like a gaper.
Wings of Desire (.11b, and loooong) has thrashed me repeatedly.

I never got on Gangbang, and The Dream absolutely terrified me! (good, and interesting, pro though, and I was a trad newbie at the time)

got a lot of work to do...
