Stellar weekend climbing at Squamish. Linked up Rambles (3p, 5.8 ) to Diedre (7p, 5.8 ). Gorgeous layback that was easy to protect. Anchors bolted. Started climbing around 7am and didn't have trouble with waiting.
Sunday led Kalahane Crack (5.7 perfect). Robert got his first crack lead in (Nice!). We top-roped the 10a to the right, it was fun small crack.
Skywalker (5p, 5.8 ) is amazing, pretty new route on right side of Shannon Falls. I've been hearing a lot about it. It was worth the hype. Take some small cams for the second pitch. I really missed some. Anchors bolted. Nice topo here: http://sonnietrotter.com/2011/06/08/skywalker/

Canadian yogurt is delicious. :drink:
I didn't bring a camera, but might get some pics next week.

Mmmmm yogurt! Way to hit up some more awesome Canadian rock!

I almost made a joke about Yoda and "another Skywalker", but it was too cringe-worthy, even for me. You're welcome. :wink:

You should climb it! There is a related plaque at the belay at the 'skywalker' pitch. ;)
