Comments: Thanks for the feed-back - I will probably try and re-configure the anchor set-up so an 80-meter rope will reach the ground while leading.

Comments: Hi Marek! Second pitch not finished yet. Thanks for pointing out the confusion - I just edited the description to reflect the current condition.

Comments: I concede your point, Old5ten.

There is a ledge, yes. Our original intent was a 5.9 with an "PG" scramble to the transition to the face. The lower part seemed good as a lead option.

The sport route to the left also has ledge-fall potential.

People should be careful.

Comments: The first two bolts have been moved up by general consensus.

Thanks for the feed-back!

Comments: The crux on this one felt a bit harder than the one to the left to both of us.

Comments: UPDATE: The water was flowing over the crossing last week at 400 cfs, but they seemed to have backed it off a bit from that - as the water is below the crossing as of today.

NOTES:

The bridge took a bit of a beating, and isn't quite as solid as it was before.

The water eroded away the hillside on the road side, but seems to be OK.

The old static line has been replaced with a dynamic rope, making the rope-grab a bit stretchy & not as reassuring as it was before, but OK.

Comments: Super fun route! Varied, exposed & engaging!

I agree with Karen - the finishing dihedral felt like it had some .10a moves, as well as the sustained & heady nature of the climb.

Nice work, Kelly! A very unique route for the Gorge! Reminds me of Gangsta Lean...

Comments: An interesting varied climb that is actually well bolted with positive holds. The loose rock up top gives it a bit of a downgrade. Hopefully it will clean up with time.

I'd advise a good yank to clear the rope when you pull it. We got ours badly stuck up in the notch.

Comments: Agree that the last bolt is not ideal.

Move the bolt? Add one more bolt above the transition?

Feedback welcome - thanks for your thoughts, Todd

Comments: "I'd also give this climb a PG13 rating..."

FYI, you can easily stem back onto the ledge if you have any trepidation climbing or clipping "on the face" anywhere during the first three bolts.

Comments: Getting after it, Jeff - Nice! Clever, as well.

I am on a moratorium since home improvements... ;)

Living vicariously, though!

Can't wait to check some of the new stuff...

Comments: The reach above will test your mettle!

This route is closed for climbing, FYI.

It may have even been shotcreted by BC Rail due to repeated trespassing?
