Writing contributions from our friends
The Choss Boys invite friends who have shared in their adventures to contribute stories from their own perspective.
Skye has been our kindred spirit for many years now. We became friends immediately when she started working at Wallnuts, our local climbing gym in St. John's. At first, our friendship involved frequent shenanigans that took place while she should have been working. As our companionship evolved, Skye accompanied us on several outdoor climbing adventures, camping trips, and has continually proven that she can party us under the table. Here, Skye writes about her experiences in Squamish during August, 2016.
Nick and Dan have been my climbing mentors since I was a young grasshopper doing my
first Learn to Climb course. By that I mean I was 20-odd years old and had just started working at a climbing gym with no idea how to climb. I was honored when they asked me to contribute to the prestigious Choss Boys blog, feeling that I had finally achieved "climber" status in their eyes. The beginning of the boys' epic 9-month journey fortuitously coincided with my first ever 10-day rookie climbing trip in Squamish, BC.
