5.10a Yak-Check

Beautiful climb up an incredible face. Would be a classic if there was like 3 or 4 more bolts over the entire route to stop several large factor 2 falls. Pulled occasional gear to prevent this.

Not sure what the deal is with pitch 10 but it's the most scared I have ever been on a rope. Mossy wet dihedral or totally unprotected 5.10x crumbly steep slab with no gear for 15+ metres.

Perhaps we just got lost. All in all a great adventure.

Took longer than my last ascent. Heavy snow-off the backside. Ice axe wouldn't be a terrible idea.

Did the climb in 4 hrs 15 min, simul climbing until pitch 8, then doing the rest in 4 pitches, and soloing off. Still a 7 hr + day with approach and 900m descent on ball bearings. Fun outing

Simuled first 12 pitches. Pitch 13 or 14 is scary due to the crumbling wet rock - pieces were coming off everywhere.

Route finding can be difficult. Be careful of rockfall and rock conditions. Best alpine summit I've done yet.

Awesome route! Those who say the route is scary and loose have probably only ever climbed at Squamish. Though it certainly is run out! Bolted anchors were glorious. Now I can drive the Coquihalla in peace

4:45 on route with simul climbing up to the traverse pitch. Was even more fun than I remembered, possibly because it was still warm at the top!

Awesome! Bigger and a bit steeped than it looks from the highway. Got a couple of new cams for booty when I went the wrong way too! Tip: traverse at the up to the awesome looking hollow flake, don't go straight up to the shiny rap chains on pitch 8 or 9!

My first alpine experience... beautiful. Since 5 years old I imagined watersliding down the face, then some 20 years later I climbed the sucker... 8hrs car to car
