Description:

This is the obvious corner system to the left of "Big Easy". It is very easy on the bottom (5.5) up to the start of the steep corner system. It is an absolutely awesome climb with thoughful stemming moves throughout. It's not too pumpy (as your stemming), but there are a few tricky moves. Make sure you bring a rope to rappel with, as you can't lower off of it.

Descent Options:

Rappel with TWO ropes from chains - you CAN'T lower with a 60 metre rope.

5 out of 5 stars Lovely stemming

A great route, with some tricky stemming while negoiating the top corner system. I climb this every time I go back to the Kootenays.

Visiting Kalso for a few days and got a chance to get some climbing in. If you have a 70 metre rope you can do it........
