    Many jugs, some that feel like they might come off. Think the beta has change since the first ascent but has some of the steeper climbing youre going to find in the bow valley.

    Pretty fun once you're through all the granola death choss in the first 2 bolts. Sounds like I broke the beta which lowers the grade significantly. 13b seems reasonable to me. Nearly got the onsight last day out but made a poor decision up top due to cold fingers and pump. Too cold today with howling wind so I fired it without warmup while hanging the draws. Flash pump is real deal.

    Another quality Evan Hau line through the mega-steeps of Apocalypse Cave! A couple hard moves but lots of cruising of good holds trying to outrun the pump-train. 2nd ascent I believe! The first time BZ and I went up to the cave, we were both instantly drawn to this striking line right through the middle of the roof...I just didnt expect it to go this year! Minus one star for the start, someone needs to take a run through there with a hammer. Awesome double send day with Mason.

    The steepest line straight through the middle of the cave. After dreaming about this potential route all winter I'm psyched how it turned out.
