Rainy Days

Shannon falls pre rain

Shannon falls post rain

Not really too much to report from the very beautiful but very wet Squamish. I have been here about a week and a half now and it has rained quite a lot of that time. The first week I was taking some time out from the climbing as I had lost my psyche to go climb by myself and the weather was not really helping. It was also a good rest for my shoulder which seems to have a permanent ache. I have been hiking though which has been great, lots and lots of uphill slogs followed by a good stroll back down.

A friend from North Vancouver joined me on Tuesday for a couple of days and we had a great time at the boulders. It was good to be back and psyched to climb again. I think climbing with another girl was just what I needed, we had fun and giggles. Yesterday we went for a hike in the rain. We tried to get to Garibaldi Lake but did not quite make it due to the ever deepening snow line. Cold and damp after being out for nearly 5 hours we headed back to downtown Squamish for hot chocolate and soup.

Not too much else to report really, the forecast is supposed to pick up for the weekend. Fingers crossed.

Peace x
