You thought PNW climbers were odd

Now I have seen a pig carcass on Index. And some friends and I for a couple years hauled a 30'x40' canvass wall tent into the hills for "base camp". But this piece of gear seems to say some Brits are a little off center.

 

 

And it was found buried under a cairn no less. cantfocus.gif

I think this is direct challenge to the PNW by the Scots. I expect one of you to out do this prank, and in good style of course. Take note: there was no hi-def film made of this event.

I thought this bit was remarkable in itself: "Volunteers clearing stones from the 4,418ft peak..." confused.gif

Don't be too sure. We did some arial bombing of our gear when we went into the Cirque of the Towers.

 

We ended up with a lot of dented cans. hahaha.gif

A few years back, someone carried a fire hydrant to the top of Mailbox Peak, I think to honor 9/11 firefighters or something like that. Not quite a piano, but still pretty darn heavy. pitty.gif

Guy Edwards was part of a group that attempted to haul a VW Bug painted with the UBC Engineers logo to the Split Pillar.

 

Too bad the cable broke on the slabs. There were bug parts all over the base for a year after!

Maybe they were going to fix it below the tree. A nice cozy Beetle would be waaayyy nicer than the dicey traverse from the dike route

This piano makes me think about the way the long-term Arctic explorers used to travel. Think about Franklin with his printing press and band of musical instruments and full set of formal china. Even when they left the ship to cross northern Canada pulling lifeboats as sledges, they brought weird stuff like a silver tea service.

 

Okay, they were probably mad from lead poisoning. But almost every one of the English explorers of the period (even the overland explorers) brought similarly dumb stuff, and they weren't =all= mad.

 

Except for the whole exploring thing.
