Looking at the upper half of Turbulence... where t...


The furthest left hand route at the 'Change Room' wall. Turbulence is a good quality but bold route. Make a belay in a bunch of flakes on a ledge around the corner from the base of the arete. Climb a flake crack near the arete. As the crack traverses right move to the arete and climb it to the top. The crux is the unsecure mantle at the top of the arete, very far above the gear.


This line follow the arete on the far left hand side of the Change Room wall. Climb a short easy crack to gain the belay ledge on the left side of the arete.

Added a two bolt rap anchor about 5m past Marc-Andre's old sling-around-a-tree belay. Will give it a touch up scrub and add a bolt at the crux as per M-A's instructions which should tame the R rating somewhat. Great slabby arete climbing overall.

Added two bolts on the cruxy arete section, no longer R rated but still rather airy feeling at the crux.
