Never Say Never
|775 page views|
A sublime route.
A bit more technically difficult and heady than its bolted neighbor Hungry Wolf (even though they share a similar grade in the guidebook), Never Say Never may be one of the finest routes at the grade in Squamish IMHO. Start on a slab and into a corner that quickly steepens to overhanging. The crack begins as hands/fists and narrows to fingers. The crux comes near the top of the corner as the locks become flaring, spaced out and insecure. Above the crack the difficulties continue...angle up and to the right on face features with finicky protection. Bolted Belay.
A thought provoking and demanding pitch. The gem of the crag.
Gobsmacking Wall. See Hungry Wolf description.
Doubles to #2 Camalot & one #3. Small to Medium Stoppers and small cams(small alien off-sets are very nice)...heavy on fingers and smaller.
