If this weren't located next to Born it would get all the traffic. Truth be told this is probably a better pitch of climbing. Its a lot more sustained for sure. It lacks the position Born has but the rock is consistently better and its way pumpier than Born although not quite as hard.

Get on this one. You'll love it.


The Vision buttress. Way steep.

This is one of the best routes in the gorge. Climb the face to a good rest, and then launch into the bouldery crux in the V-slot. Power through this and then make a series of stellar long pulls all the way up the headwall. Phenomenal. May 1, 2018

I was wandering through the never ending routes of Obed searching for that really special one, the one that would stand at the top of the podium talking mad trash to the others. Through the trees I wandered into the arena of Y-12, on the hunt as always, spotted the classics but amazingly found that the Vision might be the best climb at the Obed! It might have some beef with its bigger bro next door but do yourself a favor and see for yourself! May 25, 2018
