Description:

A six pitch route mostly up steep corners at a moderate grade; crux can be a bit stressful if wet so be prepared. Descent is via rappel to broadway on the Apron so double ropes help. Excellent route,and a great way to start Squamish Buttress...making for a superb adventure up the entire Chief

5 out of 5 stars Excellent

This can be a super-busy climb. Be prepared to wait or move on to something else. Also, have climbed this 5 days after last rain and STILL had water pouring down entire .10a pitch. (not that it stopped us....) Still, one of my faves at Squamish, the liebacks are sublime and the tricky O/W at the top really test your problem-solving skills. Good pro all the way(be extra diligent w/setting nuts at start of .10a pitch. They'll pop if you are sloppy w/placements).
