Acorns, Part 2: Starvation Lake

< Acorns, Part 1: Coho Park and the Smoke Bluffs The term “maturity” is pretty odd when you think about it, especially in relation to modern, westernized, civilization. What is it to be a mature individual nowadays? There is a societal pressure to achieve maturity. To be called immature is an insult. Myself and Spring felt this pressure in Ireland. We felt a pressure from our peers and elders to secure stable income, to be...

Mount Corriveau: We, like, totally did it!

Last Summer I worked for a few months as a Landscape Gardener. Daily we’d go to these palatial mansions in West Vancouver and preen these extravagant, terraced gardens. At one such house I noted that their garden terraces dropped down from their front windows so that the people living their couldn’t even see their own front garden. Across the street from them was another house whose occupants did not care how their garden...

But it wasn’t just the fantastic scenery that had me reminiscing on this trip. This years summit...

Scarpa Crux Approach Shoe Review

Bottom Line: A comfortable approach shoe for getting to the base of your climb. Useful also for light climbing and bouldering to warm up. Rubber soles stick to rock really well, and the side webbing allows for increased precision when balancing on small foot holds. I love them! First Impressions and Observations: Before getting the Scarpa Crux approach shoes I had never tried them on before. I just picked my size and when they arrived...

Kitchen Sink Cookies

As an avid snacker I am always on the lookout for delicious treats that taste amazing and are still somewhat healthy for you. One evening at my job I was offered a fresh-baked cookie from one of my customers and couldn’t believe what I was tasting. I asked her what it was and she said it was a grain free recipe called  “Kitchen Sink Cookies” . I went home that night and found this recipe. Turns out that after making...
