Do rad shit instead..
Me and buddy hit up a pretty sweet climb yesterday near Tofino.
Pictures first, info below.
We left the truck at around 2 PM on Thursday and headed to the lake where we would set up camp.. the trucks temp gauge said 36 degrees.
Got the tent all set up and took a swim in the lake (many times, it was perfect swimming temperature, didn't chill our beer worth a fuck though)
After we ate and cooled down a bit we headed up the mountain to do some exploring and scouted out the route we would have to take to get to the main summit in the morning.
Not a bad view really..
We hiked to the top of a chute on the north (right) side of the mountain, this is looking back down on the lake, the tents are set up on the far side.. you can also see the road we came in on.
This is looking the other way
Hey it's me!
So many mountains.
5:30AM, Gratuitous tent shot! If you draw a line from the right side of the tent straight up you can see the chute/gully we were in the day before
The start of the "glacier" Looking at the main summit.
Buddy crossing the glacier, we thought that was the sketchy part till we got to the actual summit.
Seeing if we can find the way up.. turns out it wasn't here, to the left is the bottom of the main summit.
Yup that boulder aint holding on by much, and the anchor is attached to a rock that's wedging it up. I'm sure it's fine.
You also have to crawl through a hole underneath it.
Shit gets steep and sketchy from here on out so I put the camera away and focused on not falling down. We roped up for 4 sections.
My pinner ass made it! (helps me fit in places haha at least thats what I keep telling myself)
Looking north/north westish.
Filling out the log, it' only a couple pages long with the first entry dated 2002.
Looking south east ish.
I've got more but the rest are a lot of the same thing.
Hope you guys like it, and maybe yall ease up on the pointless arguments, trying to bring back some life into this place…
Ha Ha! Made you look.
