Squamish 2010 Part 1


Monica is proud of her sister Sylvia's newest wine label featured at Trader Joe's.


Emi's dad showing off his raspberry vines in their backyard in Seattle.


The view from the campground... This is where the kite boarders play in the afternoons when the winds pick up.


Fresh pastries from Sunflower Bakery Cafe.


Chris, what is this?


Monica cruising up Nadia's Slab.


This is the view of Mt. Garibaldi from the Howe Sound Brewery in Squamish.

Monica and I have been in Squamish now for a few days and so far we've had a great time climbing and hanging out. On the way up we stayed with friends Jeff and Emi in Seattle. Thanks for the hospitality guys! We finished the drive the following day and got in a good half day of bouldering. We checked out an area north of Squamish proper by about 15 mins called Paradise Valley. Its a fairly secluded area with a stream meandering its way about the boulders. Quality granite and fun problems make this an awesome area to check out! The next day we spent at the grand wall boulders where I managed to climb Mantra, which I am very proud of being that I'm out of shape currently. Monica also got on her nemesis Sloppy Poppy and remembered some of her beta and managed to repeat several of the harder moves. Yesterday was a rest day... boooorrring! Today we were back at it, this time at the north walls and the Powerline boulders. I got on Ride the Waves and Squealing Hog and Monica climbed Hydrogen and Nadia's Slab. At the Powerline Boulders we got on a really cool problem, which i cant remember the name of. Today was a bit warm so we're hoping for cooler temps in the following days. So far its been a great trip and we're looking forward to our friend Jeff's arrival on thursday. Stay tuned for our next post and we hope you enjoy our photos.

PS- We are taking some video but because of slow upload speeds at the brewery we will not be posting any until we return home.

PSS- If you find yourself at a Trader Joe's, be sure to check out Monica's sister's wine label... "Winifred" Chardonnay.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
