Beautiful Century  Sucess!

Hung over from Halloween party with a very late start, this low committment route was perfect for the day. Overall a very enjoyable route. I thought the crux move was quite a step up compared to all other moves on the route. Then again, I never did the mantle. Found some crimps up and right at about 10b-ish. I do agree that the first pitch is true 5.8. It's just that slab always feels a little more insecure for the same grade than a steeper pitch. However I don't agree that the sixth pitch should be 5.9. If anything, I think the two other 5.9 pitchs should be 5.8. Then again, it's just splitting hairs and grade doesn't matter since the route is worth doing regardless...

Beautiful Century  Sucess!

Adam and I’s first climb since ice season. He was glad to be back on rock versus the river, but a little rusty. Brian did a super job with this route. Everyone thinks so. He does a great job period and is putting quite a few up from the ground throughout the Bow Valley. Good to have some new targets to aim for.
