[VIDEO] The Dark Forest: Squamish Bouldering

Three friends going on a three week trip in the magical forest of Squamish. Unfortunately, they had to leave after two weeks because of massive rainfalls; they still had a lot of fun and did send a few lines, sadly leaving others behind.

In a short trip like this, you go through many emotions in a short timeframe. Robin fell a the end of his summer project the day before leaving. On his last day, he couldn’t do the first move of a 35 move problem.

Gab got excited over quick sends at the beginning, only to realize he would have to project the harder lines. JB got agonizingly close to do `The Egg`, but we had to go early.

I fell at the end of ‘The Reckoning’, and didn’t have time to go back. It was amazing.

You can find the music credits at the end. The poem I used is ‘Roll the Dice’ by Charles Bukowski (read by Tom O’Bedlam). Enjoy!
