Description

Nice climbing on a buttress beside a river. Park before you cross the Blanket Creek bridge, coming from Revelstoke, croos the bridge and follow the trail leaving from the West side of the road.

Approach

Approach from the South East side of the Bridge. The trail climbs from the road, past a power pole, and then down a steep embankment. You'll know you're on the right path when you get to the safety ropes. Head upstream at bottom of descent

Where to stay

Blanket creek campground is over the road

Grade Route

Steep right-facing corner 15 meters to the left of "Undercover".

The second climb you come to on your left as you descend towards the river. Fantastic climbing through a juggy roof and onto a clever face

Sustained and excellent. To the left of the arête and to the right of a freestanding pillar. It goes up a right facing corner through the left side of a low roof. There may be a wooden engraved plaque with the name at the base

Right of Darkside, missing 3 rd bolt, though easier at that point. Up through right side of low roof then up face to ledge and up to slightly higher anchors than Darkside.

Climb a steep corner system left of the arête past a large roof up gently overhang face. A wooden plaque with the name engraved may be at the base

1 5.10a 25m
2 5.10c 25m

Climb the line of bolts to the right of the big roof up to a belay platform (p1 5.10a). Use the belay station and bolt line on the right side of the arête, up through a couple of delicate moves (p2 5.10c). The left anchor that you see from the top of pitch one leads you up some very stiff climbing, best avoided for 5.10 climbers. An alternative second pitch goes left up a block and is the retro bolted second pitch to Blankness that goes at 5.9

Climb arête more direct on second pitch

Traverse left under the roof or you'll end up on a 12!

Start the same as Electric Blanket, but continue straight up the roof
