5 out of 5 stars Girls Lie

Climbed with Mark B. and agree with him totally (review below). Best route I have climbed on EEOR and at this point I have done most any of them worth doing. I have a pic of Mark B. that is basically the same as the cover of the Bow Valley Rock guide book which is Mark Piche I believe. That 3rd pitch was a fun corner in a stellar position. Once you get beyond the 2nd bolt on the 2nd 5.11 pitch, that pitch goes below grade, so the whole route goes fairly fast if you are a competent team. The single 5.9 on the route and the last 5.10 were pretty good pitches as well. Rock is decent for a route less travelled. Mark Piche did a good job on this one. The biggest objective is having the guts to follow the pounded out goat/sheep trail on the very edge of top to gain the scramble descent.

4 out of 5 stars Good Route

This is a very good route for EEOR, and the first crux pitch is one of the better pitchs I have climbed at that grade. The second crux pitch is a bit techy but still good with the hard move being the step right to the second bolt and than stepping left to the belay ledge a bit techy as well. THe last 10a pitch is very good. The first pitch does not have a bolted belay but great ledge and cracks for 2 .5's for a belay. Bolted belays up to the top of the second 11 which on has a single bolt but with micro cams and a small nut you can set a good belay. Aside from a single bolt top of pitch 11 the rest can be on trees or gear. Very good climbing for the most part and of all the routes I have done on EEOR this is the best so far.
