True Grit

5.10b, Sport, 560 ft (170 m), 6 pitches, Grade II,  Avg: 3.2 from 33 votes
FA: M. Whalen & S. Davis, 1990
International > N America > Canada > Alberta > Bow Valley > E End of Rundle (EEOR)

Description

A 6 pitch sport route that climbs incredibly solid and fun rock. Lots of bolts, belay stations every 30m, and acrobatic moves make this a great outing. Every pitch can be linked to make the route only 3 pitches long and have the belays all on comfortable ledges.

Location

The route starts where the approach trail meets the cliffside. Scramble up an easy 15m to the start of the route marked by a two bolt anchor atop a tiny pillar.

Protection

14 draws (21 draws if you're linking pitches).

[Hide Comment] I would not describe this as well-bolted, though it is sufficient if you're solid at the grade and don't mind smeary 5.10-range moves with no hands and bolts below your feet. I found the bolt locations very awkward. Jul 17, 2019
