Despite less than ideal summer conditions, a number of strong locals are ticking off projects in the boulders. Most notably, Reagan Daly, a school teacher from Victoria who spends his summers in Squamish, sent his multi-season project Squaminator (V12). Reagan adds this latest ascent to an already long Squamish ticklist. What makes this list even more impressive is that he’s sent almost everything on it in the summers.
In other news Hans Christian Montenegro, originally from Colombia now calling Squamish home, has been working his way through the classics. Most recently he climbed Overdrive (V11) after falling many time from the last move of this long traverse. He also pulled off a rare repeat of Viper Low (V10) and climbed classics like Summoning Sit (V11/12) and Encore Une Fois (V11), among others.
The always industrious Jamie Finlayson made short work of the tricky Tippytoe, Tippytoe (V10) between attempts on his long term project, Dreamcatcher (14d).
Here is a nice little video of Reagan sending a couple problems in his local area, the boulders of Duncan, BC:
