Comments: Ian, the warning could be removed from the overall Welsford area and added to the individual crags it applies to.

Comments: Yes, that's clear to me now. I'll update the description soon, maybe once I go back and finish it properly.

Comments: In Kamouraska, I believe. A beautiful place with great rock.

Comments: The Papoose is bigger and better than it looks from the road, definitely worth checking out.

Comments: I thought this was the crux of the route, but that might be because it was 20 feet into my first pitch on rock in 9 months.

Comments: Jesse, one option would be The Lions. I don't know too many off hand, but I imagine the Sky Pilot group might provide some.

Comments: Chris, Mt Robson is in British Columbia.

My one attempt in 98 was not successful, but it was a spectacular place. The 10000 feet of gain from the start gives it a scale unlike most other north American places south of Alaska and the Yukon.

Comments: I sent a note to Yohan. He's posted lots of good stuff so I'm sure this is just an oversight or glitch.

Comments: Thanks for posting this Clayton, I've been wondering about it.

Do you think it would be significantly better if it received a good cleaning? It seems like there has been a huge amount of cleaning going on over the last few years that has resurrected some old classics and created some new ones.

What Top 50 list for Squamish are you referring to?

Comments: Went to do it on a Wednesday evening and found two parties already on it. We went and did a few other routes and came back to do it before the sun set. It looks like there will almost always be lines for this one...

Almost too comfortized, but definitely fun and good to have such a nice route at the grade. The second pitch is surprisingly intimidating looking from below, but really is just a nice 5.8.

Comments: I thought the same thing: it's a rare climb that easier than it looks from below. Good fun.

Comments: Thanks Clayton. Yes, saying it's left of Crime was a bit of an understatement. I updated it a bit. Fortunately the route sorting feature helps with this sort of thing now.

Comments: Marco, did you mean to enter 5.10b? Given how hard you climb, it's hard to imagine you taking four falls and not being able to confirm the grade if it's 10b.

I hope you recover quickly.

Comments: Shaun and crew have created a very nice crag here.

Its proximity to town and genuinely good routes makes it inevitable that it is often quite busy. I urge everyone to realize that this place must be treated carefully to keep preserve access. It's nothing we don't all want everywhere, really: no litter, low noise and visual impact, one distinct trail without other forest trampling, and use of the facilities at the parking lot...

Comments: This route is pleasant and quite long. The midstation doesn't really serve much purpose. There are a few harder moves above it (I agree with the OP that it's more like 5.9), but it's close enough the its neighbor to the left that you could always take that as easier way.

Comments: Sport, in the sense that it's climbed with draws (although I place one cam on the second pitch). I agree that it really shouldn't be called a sport route any more than the slab horror shows on the Apron or Shannon Fall should be.

Comments: Is it possible that this route is actually "Catch Me Quicker", or one of the "Catch Me..." routes, or "Over Forty"? I don't see a guidebook reference for "Catch You."

Comments: There are links that cover camping in the Squamish page. It takes a bit (too much) digging to find the actual fees, but as far as I can tell it's $8/person/night.

Comments: It's here: Sea to Sky Corridor

Dividing up complex areas isn't an exact science. In this case, the Squamish area is just the crags right around town.

As I understand it, the area you're referring to is Chek rather than Cheakamus, which has yet to be added to MP.com.

Comments: It's true the Rock On is here, but it ends at the top of the Apron, and the local guidebooks have typically lumped it in with the Apron, so that convention was followed here. Complex features like the Chief are tough to break up into completely logical sub-areas.
