Irene Yee, who goes by the popular Instagram handle @ladylockoff, has mocked up a fun redesign of a Gripped cover as Chipped. On the cover is Brittany Goris climbing the drilled-pocketed Bowling Ball climb on the Cacadaemon Boulder. Yee was recently in Squamish for the Squamish Exposed photo event at the Arc’teryx Climbing Academy.
The drilled pockets on Cacodemon were drilled many decades ago and are a sign of the past. The climb gets very few ascents, if any, during a Squamish season.
“Yee’s favorite moments for capturing a photo are when a woman’s strength comes through in her facial expression,” said Hilary Oliver in an article here. “She says – ‘any time a woman just looks baller.'”

SO EXCITED TO LAND MY FIRST MAGAZINE COVER of @grippedmagazine, uh, sorry, CHIPPED MAGAZINE! Brittany, @gorisb, sends The Chipped Route aka the Bowling Ball climb on the Cacadaemon Boulder. And if you didn't get that this was #fakenews. Don't chip to manufacture routes, it sucks.
