Girls Lie, 5.11
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
3rd Pitch- 35m- 5.11/ This is definitely the money pitch of the climb. Down climb easy ground to a point where it is easy to traverse right into the corner. Clip a bolt that is about even with your belayer. Double ropes come in handy due to both of the 5.11 pitches starting out this way. Run it out a bit to the next bolt, helped with a fairly significant hand ledge. Start wide stemming your way up the corner making some finger jams and placing a variety of smaller gear. The crux is between the 3rd and 4th bolt. The upper portion of the corner is easier with solid hand jams and gear placements used to overcome the exit bulge to a comfortable bolted belay. This pitch actually graces the front cover of the Bow Valley Guide book.
