Flashed up to the first crux with Étienne's beta. Worked the roof moves a little and bailed at the clip after the roof. Mentally exhausting. Hopefully, I can get back on it soon.

First attempt: Spent 40 mins working the moves up to the bolt after the crux. Didn't find the right sequence in the the thin face/slab at the end.

Second attempt: Fell at the first bolt, got back on right away, linked to the move before the roof. Got back on straight away but didn't pull the crux.

Definitely can be done. Beautiful route, offers many beta options depending on height and preferred style!

Traversed the river via the cable. Hiked up to the lake on 27th. Summited and hiked back to the lake on 28th. Hiked back down and traversed back on 29th.

Mostly route finding around and across snow slopes to scrambling and two pitches of roped climbing. Good rock. Then scrambling to the top. Lost the hike down the trail and ended up doing two raps (60m and 30m).

P1 (5.8) Onsight. 30m. 1 fixed pin to bolted anchor. P2 (5.7) Onsight. 8m. Bolted anchor.

The first few moves are wonderful (through the chimney) then ok climbing to a bolted anchor. To climb in three pitches: Keep climbing and build a gear anchor below the obvious crack with a nose (pinocchio). Second pitch is great and rejoins the last pitch of 'La Directe de l'ours'

Didn't climb the last pitch, having just come down from 'La Directe de l'ours'

Decent climb wandering between other climbs. Route finding involved. The best pitches are the last three. Crux was the last few moves of P4.

It's also on that climb that I leaned SR means standard rack and not single rack. And Squamish SR is a few more cams than a single rack... Made it interesting.
