Nice long offwidth crack. Layback or offwidth-jam your heart out! It was a little dirty on the slab at the top. Bring a #5 or two.


Big cams. a few smaller ones for the bottom. A couple good bolts for the anchor, but the slings weren't so great.

Save a #4 and or a #3 or it will be a long run to the bolts which wouldn't be terrible but the top is pretty dirty. Aug 6, 2016
Long and wide, but the difficulties are short. Starts as for Ivan meets G.I. Joe but immediately busts right. The wide section runs from BD #4 to #5, saving one of each for when the angle kicks back will make it feel more comfortable. The last 40 feet are an easy, but sandy groove, protectable with a #3. The anchor is now equipped with fresh quicklinks. Apr 23, 2015

Holy cow. Hardest 5.9 in Squamish? Felt much harder than Ivan Meets GI Joe. Absolutely beautiful feature, quite unique. Get on it.

There are two 3/8" bolts for the anchor. If you're heading up, be an awesome person and take two quicklinks to leave on them for people to rap from as right now there's just a bunch of tat. You can also rap from the tree five feet past the anchor with a 70m, but be careful as 70m is just barely enough. Aug 10, 2014
