With the weather getting warmer and dryer, I have been very fortunate enough to be invited out again this weekend (3rd weekend in a row) to do some trad and sport climbing at Squamish. Being able to go out and climb at such a varied and amazing venue, I believe that by the time my […]
Last weekend I was fortunate to find a climbing buddy willing to drive me and him to Squamish for my first outdoor climbing session this year and in Canada overall.
