It’s our first time really dealing with bad weather. To put it lightly, this sucks! What do we do? Do we wait it out? Do we ditch this and go hit another crag?
Problem is we are stuck in the awesome-ness of Squamish and heading east would just have us following the storm. (Or so I have been told) After checking weather reports, they say differently, complicating the decision to stay or go. We have not even got a day of climbing/bouldering in Squamish yet. So disappointed.
The possibility of going to Alaska has also been presented. It is pretty far (2000 miles just there) but would be freakin’ incredible and quite a story to tell.
So the options are as follows:
A. Stay, wait out the weather, hope that rain stops enough to get some bouldering in at Squamish
B. Leave for climbing areas east (sooner than planned) with a possibility of the storm following us (or us following the storm)
C. Alaska. Really?!
D. Sit on our asses and don’t figure anything out.
Yeah we are doing D at the moment. Sweet. Why can’t weather just play nice?
What would you do in our situation?
