Comments: As of 9/19/15, the bolted anchor is not in good condition. One bolt can be moved with your fingers (not just the hanger, but the bolt as well). The other bolt is a rusty 1/4". I would not rap off of them and certainly not toprope off of them.

Comments: Don't leave anything at the base if you do the standard walkoff descent. It's a long shitty hike back around to your stuff.

I climbed first 50 ft as offwidth/ chimney staying in groove. Hardest I have ever worked for a 5.6. Plenty of pro in back of groove.

Comments: Skip the clip! I am a huge wuss and had no problem skipping it. The fall is clean and the hold after is bomber.

Comments: Would be a classic if it were longer. Very different from any other route in BC that I have been on.

Comments: WARNING: A CAR SIZE BOULDER HAS FALLEN OFF OF THE UPPER BOWLING ALLEY. YOU CAN SEE WHERE IT COMPLETLEY DESTROYED SEVERAL TREES IN ITS PATH. THERE IS STILL A LIVE TREE UNDER IT.

IT IS CALLED THE BOWLING ALLEY FOR A REASON SO BE HEADS UP!

Comments: This woould be a great route if it was not so greasy. The fact that it is so greasy makes it so that you are never very secure even on the good holds. If I had no idea what climb this was I would have guessed 10d/11a following the bolt line.

Comments: Fantastic route. Very airy with great views.
Note: The climber in the image is not on Phantom Bridge. It looks like they are on The Vanishing.

Comments: Fun route with a bit of everything from slabs to roofs. The crux is the slab under the roof. I think 11b is a bit steep though, maybe a 10d.
