J.R.A. on J.T.R.


Part 1. With the moderate rainfall that came down last week the loamy trails above Pemberton were calling my name. Saturday, Tobin joined Danielle and myself for the always leg exploding climb from the valley bottom to the top of Jack the Ripper.


The "Middle Earth" climb was scenic as ever....



Mmmm Prototype 2014 Norco Carbon Sight 27.5.


A beautiful memorial for a local legend....


The skies were angry above Pemberton valley....  




After a few hours of climbing we dropped in.  



The rock was borderline greasy no go but we made it work....  


This is a cool place....  



Loam hunting....

Part 2. My friend Eric from Bike n Hike Corvallis Oregon was on an adventure filled tour of the Pacific Northwest last week and decided to come sample what we had to offer.  

J.T.R. was so good a only 2 days earlier we decided to hit it up one more time! Mike and I played tour guide for the day.    


This time we climbed via the "Super Duty" trail. It seemed easier than "Middle Earth".    


Solid views of Lillooet lake on the way up....


Classic view of Mt Currie showcasing the "Y" and "Pencil" Couloirs.    



Such a sweet line in Pemberton's magical forest....  


And some playful spots....


Mike makes this one look easy in a "no fall" zone.  


Another epic Pemberton afternoon.


And we made a new friend in the town of Mt Currie while Eric went to grab the Super Duty.
