Looks like lots of people spent their long weekend well!

Here's one from mine, my partner swinging back to the bivi after fixing a few more pitches:



The route is Uncle Bens, in Squamish.  Grade V, 5.10 C2+.  Mostly great rock, lots of fun pitches, 10 minute approach  :)

Nice one. I miss the chief. Back in Squampton next year hopefully. Would be nice to meet someone else psyched on aid lines on the chief, that would bring the total number I've met up to 4!

Posted these in a different thread but thought I may as well put them here. They're from earlier this year, Apr '13.

This is the pitch where the AO joins Iron Hawk. It was an awesome pitch for me since it was a big change for the ever expanding flakes of the AO. The rock was bedrock solid, clean and sharp.

Why does my photo appear smaller than the others but gets bigger when you click on it?

Hi Mark-

It has to do with the new forum version I set up a few weeks ago--the old version you couldn't post pictures, so all the pictures before had to be linked to an external url.  Now you can just upload pics directly to the forum (that was my main reason for wanting to upgrade--so we can post pics easier).  cheers!

Thanks for visiting the Big Walls Forum!!

It's pretty easy right there. The rest of the pitch gets a little more interesting. Awesome shot Tom!

As a geologist, that pitch is one of the more terrifying features on El Cap. It is damn gorgeous though...

I always forget about this thread until someone posts to it. Here's a massive dump of some stuff I have of other climbers recently.

Gif of Keenan W's dad Scott making it to the belay of pitch 4 - ZOD


Pete louges as Keenan demonstrates an attentive belay while his dad climbs :wink:


Justin Hollenbeck makes the swing low on the Nose


Here's a gif of Justin Hollenbeck climbing off texas flake


Nose conga line at the boot


After the King Swing


can ANYONE even come close to naming this obscure and seldom climbed feature?

You didn't think I would pass up the opportunity to spray a few pics of my recent route did you?

"summit" shot of Blood and Coin


slightly chossy at the end of pitch 9 (to "Yeti mating ledge" - not my name for the feature)
(It's really not as bad as it looks, except maybe for the belayer which is why I don't bother bringing one)


The heartwoods section.


The wages of Taft Granite (11 total broken sds bits: Eight 1/4" and Three 3/8")


Looking down from halfway up pitch 4


BONUS!
Here's a shot I took from climbing B.Law's "Prowd" - Pigs in space off of the second belay.

Man, with El Portal on fire, it brings back some shaky memories from last year around this time with the Rim Fire.

We spent 3 days without seeing the ground, or any other formations.

Pretty crazy.
