Dow WilliamsKor Fuller  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2009

Dow Williams

This is a RX climb. The first pitch is absolutely unprotectable above a ledge. A closed corner comprised of some of the worse chossy Canadian Rockies limestone you will ever climb. What Kor was thinking on this one I don't know. Sometimes I think he just looks for trouble. My partner wanted to bail and go repeat Homage, but I finally just sucked it up and soled 5.10RX although it is probably closer to 5.9 in terms of technicality. The 2nd pitch is a bitch to get clean. Takes a tall person I believe to nail it even if you are a solid 5.11 climber. Pro is a little iffy here and there. The third pitch goes up left on sticky limestone face, traversing right to left after you come out of the crux. The rest of it is quite a bore as well as quite loose until you reach the final pitch which many routes share, that is always a pleasant climb.
