Recently, I was trolling The Chief, the local newspaper in Squamish, and came across an article written by Jeremy Blumel. For those of you who don’t know Jeremy, he is pretty much one of the best guys around. He is a certified Elementary School teacher with the British Columbia College of Teachers, an Association of Canadian Mountain Guides certified Full Rock Guide and a graduate of Emily Carr College of Art and Design’s Traditional Animation program. Lets just say that before roping up on any multi-pitch, I always make sure I have Jeremy’s phone number with me.
The most recent article written by Blumel is a quip on the upcoming election in Squamish and the effect this may (or may not) have on climbers. I caught up with Jeremy to fill in the details.
