5 out of 5 stars First to climb this pitch combination

This climb has varied climbing from hand crack on pitch on to steep challenging dihedral on pitch 2 to the immaculate steady face climbing on pitch 5 to the outstanding crux on pitch 7. This climb has it all adventure, fantastic exposure, great climbing, amazing views out over the foothills towards Calgary over 70 kilometers away.
