It's worth noting that this climb is currently off limits due to issues surrounding CN Rail's right-of-way along the tracks and their proximity to the whole Lower Malamute area.

Kevin McLane's most recent edition of the Squamish Guidebook has detailed information about what's legitimate and what isn't. The Climber's Access Society of BC is continuing to attempt to make more progress with CN; climbing here in the mean time certainly won't help the issue. The bad news is that some of the best cracks in Squamish are affected; the good news is that if you look at McLane's book you'll see that more routes are open than many people think.

Spectacular. The logical progression to the second pitch of Exasperator; a little steeper, a little more sustained, and a section of fingers and rings between the tips/smearing and thin hands sections.

Gear ran the gamut. Starts on small nuts and grey metolius, then widens consistently up to gold c4s. You could even plug a #4 at the top if you wanted, where the climbing gets a little more physical.
