Description:

Cankers Wall. A two pitch climb accessible either by rappel (60m rope or two 50m ropes), BIO begins at the base of the Cankers crag in an open-book dihedral. The first pitch crux comes just after you exit the dihedral and involves thin, well-protected face moves out left to easier ground. Secound pitch begins on the main headwall of the crag and moves out left & around the crags primary arete. All in all, a great climb with good exposure.

GREAT two pitch. Exposed, good features, and nice rock.

I always find the crux to be just before exiting the dihedral rather than the move left afterwards. Soft .10a. I just want to lead the crack with gear, though. XD

4 out of 5 stars Good route in Great Shape

Nice 2-pitch route. Great work Gus and company, THANK-YOU. Need to try Cankers next! I found it an easy 10a, although I guess it depends on your climbing style.
