Comments: Brilliant line. Thin crux in middle with no real rest after.

Comments: Spectacular line with a very fun monkey move up the steepest section of the arete. Immediately to the right of this route is another very fine line at about 5.10d that needs a few more ascents to clean up the lichen.

Comments: A bit odd, ledgy. I would look for steeper terrain where the falls are safer.

Comments: A hard move at the bottom - actually quite hard - but the rest was kind of easy and not particularily interesting. Do the routes nearby - they are steeper and better.

Comments: A comment to assist with locating this area for those from out of town: The turn off of Hwy 18 on Pine Valley highway is past Veyo. After turning off of Hwy 18 I went 5.6 miles (on my odometer) to the post and cairned trail - if you go to far you pass a white railing on the right side of the road and you can see the rocks down below. There is a turn around point 6.0 miles with a large Pine Valley sign.

This area is higher altitude - snow on the ground up top and can feel bitter, but much of the... more >>

Comments: Kris Barta, a friend, took the picture. I was taking them up an "easy route" based on a faulty memory from the first ascent.

Comments: I can't remember where the rest is - I do not think it is that flake. There is some tricky knee lock near the top. However, 17 years ago I tried to remove that flake with a car jack because I thought it was dangerous also - and it was SOLID then - it did not budge. Not sure if the ensuring years have loosened it much but you don't need it anyhow.

Comments: A very nice introduction route to the mountain that essentially climbs the same terrain as you rappel. Nothing to hard, great gear, a perfect route for someone looking for a short, safe (can rappel at any pitch)traditional line in the mountains with a spectacular summit.

Comments: Good warm up for the wall. Feels like a gym jug haul. Just twist and reach and there is another huge hole to pull on.

Comments: A fun route well worth doing that eventually (20 years later) might clean up with some action. It is amazing how much rock we had to peel off to get down to relatively solid rock. Rarely any line waiting to climb here and the holds probably are still sharp rather than slippery. Skip the rest you can find out right high up to get the full value of the original line.

Comments: The bottom choss is quite easy. Once you clip the first bolt the rock quality increases dramatically (following many hours of choss gardening reuqired to establish the line). The original finish went straight past the final bolt but I think it is a bit easier if you drift right and clip off left. A very quality line for the grade.

Comments: Very enjoyable route requiring both smear climbing technique (crux)followed by some very fun crack climbing taking finger sized gear. Belay off some cams at the top. Your belayer can then traverse/downclimb to a nearby pair of bolts that you can rap off with a single rope.

Comments: Best route on this wall or the adjacent wall behind it. Some cool moves and some cool gear.

Comments: Probably the best on the this side of the wall and worth doing if you are in the area (across the way at the Sailor wall is better). We easily combined the first two pitches - you might want a single big wire to protect this second pitch after you step up above the belay. the final pitch has a short cool mantle sequence and then is easy.

Comments: Unlike others I was pretty underwhelmed by this route. Kind of generic bolt clipping on all the routes on this entire wall - nothing much different for the various routes other than the grade - Reach up, step up, clip, repeat. There is a single short section at the very end that was interesting.

Comments: Amazing not to be missed route. Be sure to have your thin edging skills intact. The start takes a #4 camalot followed by a bolt followed by a medium cam in the 1-2 inch range (a nest of cams is possible in the undercling crack). After a few more moves it gets very thin and balancy. A 70 meter rope makes it to the ground exactly with stretch.

Comments: This route is spectacular. Among the best crack climbs in the park at this grade - on par with Thin Slice in terms of quality and difficulty. It is quite intimidating from the base but goes at an easier effort that you suspect. It climbs like a sport climb with crack protection (except the initial short section of hand crack). A 60 meter rope off the belay to the left is adequate. The climb directly to the right, however, needs a 70 meter rope to return to the ground.

Comments: A big hold that was present in the late 1980s near the start is now missing making the start very hard - much harder now than 20 years ago.

Comments: Stunning route - great variety of techniques used. Seems like there is no gear from below but after every cruxy sequence there is bomber gear, wires, cams. Bring brass for the upper crux thin crack.

Comments: A half inch cam after the second bolt (grey camalot) makes the bottom safer and a 1.5 inch cam at the top (green or red camalot) makes the top safer. Niether is neccesary since these are easy moves, but having done it both ways I prefer these two pieces of gear. to keep any drag down, put a long sling on the last bolt due to it being a bit off line to the left.

Comments: "R" rating? Huh? It is a sport climb with plenty of bolts. Great climb with standard sport bolt protection and nothing R about it. I suspect an "R" rating will scare people off but no need for that here.
