Description

SDS on the jug flake under the roof as per November. Move up and left until you hit the sloping lip. Where November uses the huge jug at the lip and then tops out through the blocky corner, High Road traverses left along the lip using slopes, crimps, and powerful heels to top out at the far left side of the boulder. While it might be possible to top out at any point, fight through the forearm pump until you reach edges and jugs to top out on the left side.

A great problem that feels less contrived than it sounds, the movement is excellent and the length is somewhat unique for Calabogie. An edge about a foot above the lip has been cleaned/dug out fairly recently which may make the problem easier, so if you want to do the original line just avoid this seam.

This problem traverses along the lip of the boulder, the heavily chalked sloping, diagonal ledge running under the roof is the Low Road V8, which looks excellent but is also harder.

Location

Starts as per November under the roof of the Frigid Cave Boulder, behind and to the left of the Gateway Boulder

Protection

a few pads or a spotter to move one in order to cover the blocks resting under the cruxes.
