Every now and then we have the pleasure of unexpected visits from climbers who swing by our head office in Squamish, BC. Just a couple of days ago, Christian Core and his wife Stella, new Squamish residents, made a surprise appearance at our headquarters with a flash drive of photos and a video Christian shot of our ambassador Michelle Yalowega.
Why are we so excited about this? Firstly, Michelle has been an integral part of our ambassador team for a long time. It is a pleasure to see beautifully shot images of her climbing. Secondly, it's a joy to welcome a talented person such as Christian; he is one of Italy's most celebrated climbers with a FA of the boulder problem Gioia (V16), to Squamish. We are looking forward to having Christian, Stella, and their twin girls, grow with our town and climbing community.
Here is a short video filmed last fall in Squamish by Christian. Michelle climbs Stinger Low (v10).
Christian and Michelle show demonstrate beautifully that snow and ice don't necessarily signal the end of the bouldering season.
