Welcome to Rockies Obscure!
Today is Wednesday August 24, 2016
NEW postings are:
First a short rant: Parks Canada if you are going to promote ‘staycations’ please provide the infrastructure, more campgrounds to be specific! And if trailers get an overflow near Lake Louise what about those with tents?
This late summer update is my first vacation travelogue but it doesn’t really fit with ‘the Rockies’ , however since I grew up in central BC and visited some wonderful locations this summer, I decided to make this the main focus of the update. For something Rockies, see Alpine East to see Glenn Reisenhofer’s new route on Mt.Baldy north face.
Go to Bouldering West to see new route info and photo journeys for Kelowna’s Boulderfields; for Oregon Jack near Ashcroft; Roche Lake’s Balcony area; and the recently cleaned and climbed boulders at Venables Valley. Go to Random Obscurities to see some movie locations from around the Kamloops area. Plus check out the newest B.C. addition of Piolet de Obscure, found in Random Obscurities.
I would also like to say thanks to The Jasper Local newspaper for writing a story about Rockies Obscure in their June 15 edition that can be accessed as a PDF. Thanks Bob Covey!
Coming soon: new climbs near Lake Louise, new climbs in Kananaskis, and that Keelhaul variation from the 90s.
Last update was in April.
Submit to us your jem route, there are many diamonds in the rough, let everyone in on the secret!
