Summer in Squamish

I spent the summer of 2007 in Squamish. I have a few pictures that I might post eventually, but I didn't have my camera for most of the great climbing days. I wanted to put a post about the summer here anyway, so here's a list of the trad climbs I led over the summer (the ones I can remember anyway).

Mosquito (5.8)
Phlegmish Dance (5.8)
Pixie Corner (5.8)
Octopus Garden in the Shade (5.8)
Edible Panties (5.7)
Laughing Crack (5.7)
Cat Crack (5.6)
Sally Five Fingers (5.8)
1000 Pardons (5.8)
Rock On (p1, p2, p.5; 5.8, 5.9, 5.8)
Call any Vegetable (5.8)
Unearthly Delights (5.9)
Nubile Woman (5.10a)
The Zip (5.10a)
Exasperator (first pitch; 5.10a)

And of course a few pitches on Sparrow -- I can't remember which ones because I fell and slid down 40 feet of slab on the 4th pitch resulting in a broken ankle. But I'm walking and doing a bit of climbing again so I'll be back out there soon. Check back for my next trip report!
