Climber on Imaginary Grace, 5.8


The Amphitheater has a good selection of moderate routes. The majority tend to be trad, including several 2 pitch climbs, however there are a few sport lines too.

Unlike the majority of the other routes here this area has a selection of routes that are not on steep and overhanging rock.

Getting There 

Walk passed the end of the lake until you see a large setback in the cliff band with a scree slope at its base.

Corner Journey 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  North America : Canada : ... : Amphitheater
Work your way up the corner crack with great protection on purple rock. There is a rap station at the top of the route which requires two rope rappel (40m). There is a secondary rap station directly below in an alcove or use the two pitons halfway though the route below roof on the route. It is much easier to have a follower clean then try to basically downclimb to reach the slanted corner from anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
