THank you very much Kane! Appreciate the kind words. It's a gorgeous area (well worth a visit :) with some amazing alpine views.

thanks Martin but as you well know it looks more impressive in photos - in reality it feels 4th class for the most part.

heh, heh :)

Thanks but Martin can vouch for how easy this part is (the nice positive cracks in the low angle slab are just not visible from this angle)

Yeah, I know. Nelson and Potterfield calls it 5.7. Huh?, more like class 4-.



Great photos.

We simulclimbed most of the terrain up to here but started pitching it out on this slab to take photos so actually did have decent anchors :)

I agree. I thought that the knife edge traverse on next pitch (or so?) had its .7 moments but not the slab.



Lookin' forward to that Dark Rhythm/Exfo. Dome page (been hoping to try that route - looks better from our point of view than Rainman :) How's the approach (that sidewalk slab) - can a dog make it to the base? thanks!

Sidewalk slab is fun and easy, mostly class 2, a dog should be fine. You will have to hop up a couple class 3 / 4 sections (6 feet high), and the dog might need a "lift" there.
