So I hit up Mount Grotto again today...the weather was supposed to stay clear but as usual, it dissapointed me again! Regardless it was a fun day of scrambling. On Attempt 1 I made it about 3/5ths of the way up. This time was 4/5ths.

Heres me:

And here's Ian, a Scottish guy I met on the way up:

The famous "Three Sisters"

Canmore...where I live:

Us decending...beaten by fatigue, weather and a deep layer of snow.

dude, you live in canmore? well at least you arent too far from calgary.lol

great pics man.

there's the three sisters, but i think there's also a "7 sisters"...or something like that...but 3-4 of the "sisters" arent so veluptuous...lol

better luck next time man. if you think about it, 3rd times a charm...and you made it roughly 4/5ths of the way up this time, so the third time SHOULD be 5/5ths...lol

I gotta ask R1dermon...if trying to climb a mountain many km's away from a road with little food and freezing cold temperatures is gay, what do you call yourself when you drink all those fruity drinks and uppercut rappers?

Just love baby!

Off to do my laundry

the problem: too many trees to hug.... not enough hippies in your group... bring the whole "gathering" next time danny (drums, insence and all) that way you wont have to stop and hug every tree you pass, and maybe, just maybe you could make it to the top... sweet pictures tho...

when i drove past canmore i said...

"damn...its cold here..."
i'm from winnipeg, it can't be anywhere near as bad as it gets here.

Close call...when I was in Winnipeg it was like -27 and it stung your skin just to be outside...here it was -20 and wasnt as bad but when the wind picks up its death.

BTW, when I arrived in Calgary it was -40...coldest in 100 years or something

A++ retort there danny.


if climbing mountains is "gay" i wonder just how gay drinking girlie drinks is?

scrubbs- im from vancouver, so anything in the minus is f*cking cold.lol. when i lived in calgary i woke up to -42 to -45 for about 2 weeks straight. i couldnt understand why it was so cold. walking to my apartment from my car one night i swear my nuts almost froze to my leg.

i sure as hell havent climbed mount grotto, but ive climbed other mountains in or near the BC interior. i spent 5 days climbing one a few years ago with some friends. not rock climbing, but hiking and camping and such.

i dont know why you insist on being such a dumb c*nt, but i wasnt poking fun at danny at all. i was poking fun at the guy who called climbing a mountain "gay". as its far from that. its something you can do which you can fully relax and enjoy being outdoors and miles away from any idiots.
