The Rain

I haven't been blogging lately, but I have a pretty good excuse. My computer stopped working and I haven't found a replacement yet. I'm writing now from the public library, which works well enough.  I can't access any photos from my camera though, so I don't have a whole lot to share.

So what's going on right now? Well, I'm in Squamish, and it's raining. No real surprise there, but this time of year when it starts raining, you start to question if it will dry up again before the rainy season is in full force.  It's no mystery then, why so many climbers have fled to inland areas, seeking dryer weather.

For now though, I am sticking around. I'm holding out hope that some good fall conditions are still to come. Perhaps it's that my elbow has been hurting, and I figure a little rest will do it good. Or maybe it's that I'm just not ready to be done climbing here.  I have always been a little uncertain about which bouldering area was my favorite, but my recent time here in Squamish has crystallized my view on the matter.  I have come to believe that Squamish is the best bouldering in North America, and I'm not leaving without a fight!

  1. Right on Paul, I hope your wait is rewarded with some cold and crispy fall days on the Squamish granite!
    I'd say we have another 2 weeks before it gets good in Leavenworth, but I've been climbing in both canyons every weekend. Look forward to climbing with you again soon!
