The 2012 Canadian Alpine Journal has been out for a while now, but I'm still pretty excited about it. I wrote my usual Southern Ontario new mixed routes story but also wrote one about Metamorphosis, or maybe more correctly reworked my post I put on here. I was just expecting it to go in the back of the CAJ with the other stuff from the East, but being an important route for Ontario I thought I should write a story for the route itself rather than give it quick mention in the area overview.
After submitting the Metamorphosis story they wanted to use it as a feature article if I elaborated a bit more on Ouray and wrote an opening for the first page of the story. It also hinged on if there were enough high quality pictures to go along with it. Fortunately Martin Suchma had a few good shots of me on the route and we were able to get great sequence of shots from William Snyder of me at Ouray as well. After the pics were in they decided to put One of Martin's photo's of Metamorphosis on the cover.
