A lot of walking for a short bit of climbing, but still a fun outing with very nice scenery. The rappel is optional, and very short, but the downclimb alternative has a couple of sketchy moves. Trip report.
South-West Face Direct III 5.7 Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2000
Climbed with Phil G. We are about 36 hours door to door from Calgary, used bikes for part of the approach, spent the night at the ACC Centennial Hut, did the route in about 12 (?) pitches. Mid section was chossy, but the top pitches were solid and fun.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
