Route X 5.9+ Location: Driving from Terrace drive past the Exchamsiks River. Park on a pull out just past the concrete blocks on the side of the road. Walk east toward Exchamsiks Provincial Park. The route climbs the most clean piece of rock on this portion of the face. A large x created by natraul quartz viens marks the start of the route. Note the climb was originally put up from ground up so Run outs do exist (some may be reduced by climbing with a small rack too supplement bolts). The Climb: Pitch #1 40 meters 5.8 The first pitch is characterized by a large X made of quartz. The first overhang is loose however after surmounting the overhang the rock is impeccable. The nature of this pitch is edges, pockets and a section of smearing. Pitch #2 20 meters 5.9 This pitch is short due to the nature of the pitch. You climb through rolling terrain. Cruxes are encountered where the route steepens. Pitch #3 35 meters 5.8 Climb up and left of the belay. Climb further up and eventually follow a traverse of bolts right. Pockets, smearing and edging. Pitch #4 25 meters 5.9 Climb up corner past two bolts. Then trend right past four more bolts to a hanging belay. Rap the route Have fun and Climb Safe. (Note its possible to rap directly down from the bottom of pitch five in two more sixty meter rappels. Itís Awesome!!!

Climbed it with my silent partner, as I could not find anybody to climb with. Nice and cruisy.

Needs a couple more pitches to take you to the top at harder grade.

Nice views and sounds of seals from the Skeena.
