Running the Arc’teryx Squamish 50 23k

  Photos by Lesley Morgan Loree Photos by Lesley Morgan Loree On Saturday, the 10th of August, I ran in my first ever race, road or trail, the “Squamish 50” 23k. It’s called the Squamish 50 as the main race is 50 miles long, but they also offer variants of the course that are 50km’s and 23km’s in length. Spring, the other half of pebbleshoo, ran in the 50km, a mammoth achievement, and will be posting...

In the footsteps of Elves: Brunswick Mountain, NE Gully

“Will I set my alarm for 5am or 6?” I thought. “Suppose I better set it for 5, there’s no where to park on Georgia St in Vancouver if he’s early and I’m late.” My friend, Dean, was going to be picking me up at 6am across from the Vancouver Art Gallery on Sunday morning.

We decided to do something a little bit more laid back, have a campsite we wouldn’t have to move for 2 nights and bag some reasonably close mountains with...

Ice Climbing, The Rambles: A Photo Essay

Recently we drove a few hours North in search of good Ice to climb near the Gold Rush town of Lillooet, BC. We weren’t hopeful as the conditions over the previous few weeks had not been favorable. In the 11th hour we received word that The Rambles, an area about a 30min drive South of Lillooet, was “in” meaning the ice could still be climbed. We booked a cheap Motel in Lillooet, crammed all our climbing gear into the...
