Comments: Pitches are pretty short if you do it as 5. The crux section is really short as well. If I were to go back I would try to connect 2 and 3 (be mindful of rope drag after the undercling as you'll be going back left eventually). If I had the smaller gear, I'd do the crux finger crack and up the adjacent (.10) crack system and build a belay when it gets wider and mellower, otherwise the crux pitch is super short. I pulled the #6 out of the backpack for t... more >>

Comments: Rogers Pass Alpine by Dave Jones (2012) is a pretty spectacular book oriented at accessing alpine routes from the pass. It's another really pretty High Col book.

Comments: We built an anchor up top after doing NBTBY and TR'd the looker's right side of the top bulge. It was a bit harder, maybe 5.9+, with an interesting smaller crack to finish the climb and some fun roof moves.

Cranbrook

The Lakit Lake page should really be thrown in under Cranbrook. Or an East Kootenays page should be created that has all the Kimberley/Cranbrook areas in it. Then the West Kootenay page could get things like the Kootenay Crag, the Kootenays page that's currently under the Columbias>Selkirks, as well as the Valhallas, which is under Columbias>Selkirks too.

People that live in the area think of it more as East Kootenays (Kimberley Cranbrook), and West Kootenays (Nelson-Castlegar-Valhallas), which are also the delineations for the rock climbing guidebooks for the area.

MP isn't used too much in this part of Canada, but a little cleaning up might make it more appealing.
