Byzantium- 30m-5.10c/ Might be the best route in Cougar Canyon
. Several locals think so. Start just right of the large spruce tree with a belay bolt. This is a full 30m pitch through 13 bolts to the fixed top rope anchor. Quite sustained, but the first real crux is through the depression about a third of the way up. The true crux awaits at the top third. The middle section is by far the easiest. Tons of weight and balancing moves, side to side, will make this route a breeze if performed correctly. Second time up you will go much faster and smoother. Byzantium involves mostly featured face climbing.
