A route topo for Blame Canada, eh? Be sure to drink a two-four of Molson and then down a plate of poutine. Then put the rest down the garburator and give-er a rip. Be sure to watch out for the moose!

Comments: I climbed this the other day, and the original beta still holds despite the broken foot at the crux. Still mid-5.11 with funky beta.
