      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Fraser Canyon Conditions

Recommended Posts

Hope - buried under snow. Looked wet.

Superheroes Cirque - thin WI6 & wet mixed for super heroes only

Jackass - open wetness. But a neat skinny dagger/pillar next to it has formed!

Kanaka Column - gushing at the top

Crucible - heavily flowing

Goldpan - Energizer looked in. Happy Boy did not.

Spences Bridge - the main flow was open & wet, but a neat hanging dagger almost touching down on the right wall

 

Unclimbed ice you can see in Kwoiek Creek looked gray... in?? Where is the Unimog anyhow. wave.gif

I just had a friend GIVE me his copy of Westcoast Ice today grin.gif in lieu of gas money. That, and I think he felt bad for me for getting a speeding ticket on the Squamish Highway. Bastards totally fishing there in that 50km zone right by Horsehoe Bay. I was doing 96km grin.gif

How might I go about getting a copy of West Coast Ice, i've looked at ebay and a few other used book store places. Any ideas/hints.

Strangely enough, a friend of mine recently got a copy from the bookstore (don't know the name, but others might) a few doors down from Lagan's Bakery in Lake Louise.

its desperate when you have to go to da Rockies to find BC ice guide.

 

altho i remember when Jo Jo 3rd ed. was sold out in da Rockies and you could still buy it at MEC Vancouver..... same thing in reverse.

Stores like 'Coast Mountain Sports' don't move a lot of guide books, so it's entirely likely that one or other of their locations will have one kicking around. I saw one on the shelf there well after they disappeared from MEC.

 

I'd be willing to bet you could find out for sure w/ one phone call; assuming you get a store clerk who can find their ass with both hands.
