fun little route. too short!

Note: New route moratorium area MORE INFO >>>


This is yet another addition to this section of cliff. Sea Breeze has a very short crux followed by an enjoyable romp up the easy slab above.

Start on the big flake to the right of S.O.S.(5.11a). Layback up and do one or two challenging moves to get up on to the slab where things get more easy.


The far right route at the crag starts on a huge flake.


Bolts to anchors.

Watch out for the bees nest up past the forth bolt and to the left. It is right inside a nice hold too!

Isn't the Crow's Nest closed for falcons now?

The Crow's nest is not usually included in the bird ban, though you should probably avoid using the rap anchor on the far left side that drops you into Yellow Knife gully.

The birds are in a different nest this year just across from the crows nest atop Yellowknife Buttress... Chris Martin who is in charge of the closures was considering closing some of crows nest this year but I think it would just be the left side of the crag and there would be signs up there... but yes as Mark said do avoid that rap station while nesting is going on.

Hornets or wasps living in an appealing hold next to bolt 4. I guess they've been living there for a while.
