Because no self respecting climbing forum should be without one
In breaking news; the chieftain has been restored to its former glory.
Climbers rejoice

seems appropriate to have the first climbing pic for the chief thread featuring the mighty diedre!

Naturally all things squamish start and finish with the Grand Wall. The traffic noise from the spleef too high road pretty much keeps me away from the crags above the road these days ( that and poor fitness) but oh! Those pitches including this one of the sail flake taken oct 18

A sunny off season crag worth visiting is the cream of white mice buttress- this pic shot at a rest ledge on a bolted arete variant - the original line is more classic though

Thanks for the effort with the pics, it's cool to at least look at climbing
survival is our life, we live from day to day
never know who you're gonna meet in a money making state

everybody lives here now, the dustbin of the world
an unwanted pool of labor with our promises of pearls

Found a few snaps in a old photo album when rooting around for extra Xmas lights to brighten the pandemic gloom
Iirc this was taken on a high school weekend trip to squamish as I trembled my way up the ever stout apron strings - note rope position

Squamish is the best. 

I was always lukewarm on going there, I figured, I live in the CA with the best granite in the world, why travel to Canada for more of the same?

But I was wrong.  Squamish granite is better than Valley granite. And more fun (although not quite as good) as Needles granite. 

One of the best trips I ever went on.
