Comments: The route description should say 35 meters not 35'. Its tight to lower witha 60M rope be carefull.

One of Skaha's classic routes.

Comments: A great climb, unbelievably steep for a slab climb, mentally taxing all the way but a enough well placed bolts to keep it sane.

Comments: The 3rd bolt has been moved to the left to avoid using the hollow side pull. Climbs on solid rock now straight up from the third bolt, then traverses right. Safe for all.

Comments: Recently bolted as a lead climb. The starting moves are definitely harder than 5.9. Short people may need a cheater stone.

Comments: Excellent route with solid rock on all the hard moves, be carefull pulling onto the ledge at half way. sure to be popular. I'm only 5'8" and didn't have any problem with the lower crux.

Comments: Fun with positive edges. The suspect hollow side pull before the third bolt can be avoided by using the rock solid flake directly under.
I would give it 3 stars if it was longer.

Comments: A great climb, much steeper than it first appears. Strenuous, 10+ would be a more appropriate grade,

Comments: A JT classic, great protection where you need it. This route has it all , exposure and solid edges. I would bring a 4' runner next time for the #2 and 3 cam to avoid rope drag at the top. I slung all my remaining gear onto a 2' sling and still fought the drag topping out. A 1.5/2/3 cam will give you lots of options at the break.

Comments: I agree 10b/c. Slopers , good footwork required. Well bolted but still feels heady due to the insecure climbing on slabby holds.

Comments: The start footholds are super polished, easily 10+ start, i've climbed more positive 11 routes, but It may be height dependant for me at 5'8". Balancy heady moves up higher, a high gravity day for me with a few falls, no on sight.
3 stars out of 4.
