I am Steve! I should start checking flights and should get a passport or they may not let me in.

See you soon ;)

If people are not interested they are crazy!!! Squamish has it all, BIG routes (roadside), cragging, sport climbing, and slab climbing that is sure to test the best in New England. I was lucky enough to spend almost three weeks there last summer and it was just not enough time. If you can't tell I'm very interested but then the real world sets in and I guess I may have to work this summer. You better believe I will be there in my dreams.

I daydream about going, but I'd like to be a solid .10 climber to make such a trip worthwhile.

Here's some stoke material for y'all.

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

Very interested--have to get back there, BUT, traveling to the wedding of my god-daughter in the English Lake district in August, so I'll have to settle for climbing British crags and drinking "Real Ale" ! Things could be worse!

One thing I never knew about Squamish is how great the bouldering is there. It seemed that more people were there just to boulder than rope up. Who would have thought? Picture pawtuckway on steroids but with the chief instead of devils den behind you. Oh and there is always the fun of watching one of NH great climbers wing suite off the top across the road and back!!! (wow)!!!!

Yeah John, but first I'm driving my daughter's car to Jackson,WY leaving CT June 4, then driving back to CO for some cragging at Lumpy and Eldo. Besides, it can be dry in the English Lakes District in August  :-[ (and pigs can fly) ??? At least the Ale is good!
