marc_leclerc Posted January 13, 2012 Share Posted January 13, 2012 Some of my best rock climbing days ever have been in Squamish in the winter. It doesn't happen to often, but when the sun comes out and the bluffs dry up conditions are just perfect for all the intricate friction dependent climbing the granite has to offer. In my opinion, winter is THE season for sending the hard routes in The Smoke Bluffs, same goes for bouldering. I pity all the boulderers shredding their skin to peices while greasing off crystally slopers on problems all Summer. People sometimes say that Squamish bouldering grades are stiff when really they are just graded for dry winter conditions Not the calendar winter technically, these are both from the second week of December, but this is winter cragging!
