Featured Route For Mount Boucherie

Core 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  North America : Canada : ... : Mount Boucherie
A short somewhat-vertical route with giant huecos & nubbins formed in conglomerate rock (mostly rhyolite and andesite), which was a former stratovalcano. The crux is a reachy bit about 15' off the deck, and then a delicate move to an easier finish beneath the chains/station. Slab climbing can continue above this route for another pitch (approx. 70')....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
