Frik,

I went up to Lac Lyster many years ago. Only got a couple shorter things in as I had absolutely no beta. Other than there was a cliff there. Have been up to try La Gringolet - but have actually never gotten too far up it due to poor conditions. It's still on the list.

I defended him in the past when the subject of banning LL came up, but I think I have to change my mind. He seems to be completely deaf to the fact that he is relentlessly annoying. People come to NEClimbs to connect with fellow climbers, maybe learn something, argue a bit and gossip, but not be constantly annoyed. LL has some valid points hidden amungst his ramblings, but they are lost under the abrasiveness and incessant repetition of his favorite two topics. I think he needs a holiday.

There is a pretty decent Ice climb there too..
 

Ah le gringalet, every year I make a plan to head up there but it never seems to happen, perhaps this will be the winter.

Hey Dave

I've tried to leave twice in ten years.
It's like like Frito's, you can't help it.

We'll leave the light on.  ;D

Aside from his sport schtick, useless and backwards proselytizing, and his inability to grasp even the most basic concepts of climbing for fun, pretty sure LL hasn't broken any type of forum rule necessitating banning. Even his trolls while annoying are still at the very least climbing related.If Al goes around banning every user that gets under someone's skin this place would get boring pretty fast.

Hey guys, this is getting a little heated. It's just climbing, which is about as important as, oh, marbles. Lighten up.
When some one don't came back and they don't want that there name was in accident in north american mountaineering because the mistake is so basic... that worth to fight for safety..

One day or an other, there always will be a climber who will go to try canon, mt washington and other cliff, and because when we talk seriously about think like hand grip, direction of fall, force on the last pro, how the expert workout to place good nuts, ethic of bottom up, how to bail safely, you laught at those safety rules wrote in mountaineering freedom of the hill, those climber are going to have accident, they will make basic mistake.

I was a lifeguard before and rules like never leave your children close to a pool, close the gate, wear your safety jacket, etc, most always be remember each year to the swimmer...and still many death.

Why shouldn't talked about safety of trad, which is more important, and safety in a gym, which it easier to control. why couldn't describe cliff for trad, without always fighting bolt climber, and describe cliff for sport?

When people climb a long cliff without pushing themselve too high, just at a good chalenge...they love it and they want to learn more and when they come back to the gym...  it is less fun. You can even make route in a gym for workout  on sight in trad. In publicity, many company diversify there products to reach more client

I'm just glad no one is calling him "James" anymore.
That really was an actual thing back around 80 or so... honest.

We used to Climb at the Pinnacle a lot. Back then it was called Lac Lyster - or maybe that's just what we called it.
A great spot. The locals did a pretty good job developing the place.   

There is a pretty decent Ice climb there too..

Al, not sure if you saw my note. I have quite a few pictures of Brian that you can help yourself to.

That is a fantastic shot you selected for the cover, Al. Bad-assed climbing shot and a really aesthetic picture.

Thanks for sharing it, Dominic.
