Description

A diamond in the rough... Most routes at the NW Territories cant hold a candle to this awesome 100 ft long low angle dance capped with a super fun corner.

This climb was retro-bolted and it seems like a good thing to me.
It saw no use as a trad climb and now it sees some use as a sport climb. There was even a little chalk on it the other day when i did it.

Start by clipping a bolt from a low ledge and pulling a boulder problem over a block to get on to the main buttress. The boulder problem is the hardest your muscles will work the whole time you are on the route but be prepared for your brain to get pumped as you think your way through the route finding above. Dance your way up the low angle face climbing for 70 feet or so to a stance below a corner. Stem the corner to a tricky but easy step left and clip the anchors with a little effort (you might wish they were a foot lower).

60m ROPE NEEDED TO LOWER OFF!!!

Location

As you hike up from the boulder field this route will be right in front of you as the trail meets the cliff and it just begs to be climbed.

Protection

12 bolts to quick clips...

You must have a 60m rope to lower off!!!
