The big news for us this weekend is that 475B in Pisgah National Forest is finally open! Hooray for easy access to Looking Glass climbing again! The word seemed to be out Saturday, as all three parking areas were packed with climbers drinking in the warm weather. A few sprinkles did not thwart us at the North Side, where Phil started sussing out the ultra thin, Waste Not Want Not. It turns out a #00 C3 is not the ideal crux piece!

I was particularly excited to see multiple female trad leaders giving a go at Invisible Airwaves. We need more hard-charging trad chicas around here.

Friday and Saturday night, Banff did not disappoint and the films were a treat to the packed audiences. The Swiss Machine and The Asgard Project represented climbing well, both motivating and frightening! Both are available at LGO if you want to check out the full length films and fuel your spring climbing motivation.

We also have a fresh selection of Sanuks and an unbelievable 3.2 oz Summit Series shell from The North Face. Everybody can make room for an emergency shell like that in their pack!
Bring in your Banff ticket stub through the end of March for 10% off and Happy Spring Adventures!
