Novica iz odprave > Bugaboos, Kanada 2012

Tik pred odhodom

Poletno dogajanje in obveznosti so kar potegnile naprej, tako da je dan odhoda tako rekoč pred vrati. In kaj naju čaka?
 

Najin letošnji glavni plezalni cilj, stene v področju Bugaboo Provincial Park so bile glede na poročanja najinih lokalnih obveščevalcev v čisto zimskem vzdušju, še slab teden dni nazaj. Strmi odseki sten so že deloma godni za plezanje, vsi položnejši deli sten in dostopi/sestopi pa še čakajo na dobre razmere. Moja stara znanka iz tekem v Ourayu, Jen Olson in njena mreža gorskih vodnic poroča o popolnoma zasneženih stenah. Celo koča Conrad Kain je letos tako zabasana s snegom, da še niso uspeli izkopati nobenih cevi, da bi sploh lahko začeli normalno obratovat.

Tako sva si glede na trenutne razmere in vreme naredila mali milijon možnosti kako taktično izpeljati to odpravo, za katero nama je že sedaj jasno, da bi bilo res v redu imeti kakšna dva meseca časa. A kaj ko jih nimava. Ideje kam in kako imava, na najino stran se morajo postaviti še samo razmere in vreme.

Letiva v Portland (Oregon), kjer najameva avto in nato skozi Seattle (Washington) nadaljujeva proti meji s Kanado ter Vancouvru (Britanska Kolumbija). Enkrat vmes naju bo "zaneslo" še v Squamish, na Vancouver Island in v Olympia NP. 

 

Velike stene, dogodivščine (in velika drevesa), midva prihajava! Od računalnika, pa se odklapljava za nekaj časa ;-)

Želiva vam lepo in aktivno preživeto poletje.

Perfect Morocco

The expedition to Morocco was really great. We were enraptured with its diversity and hospitability of the local people. And especially with unbelievably amounts of reddish walls, one of the best limestone climbing cliffs we know!
