Description: edit

AKA The Chossome Corner. If you can look past the choss, this climb is a lot of fun.

Boulder through an initial choss band to gain the Bow Valley Enduro Corner. Climb the corner, then a series of big moves takes you to the top.

Farthest right route on the Afterthought Wall. Stick clip the first bolt.

    It doesnt look like much, but this climb has some cool corner moves with burly boulder problems to start and finish. Good job on this one IceMan!

    Behind the rough exterior of this route hides some very interesting climbing with a hard and puzzling crux getting to the chains. Ysbrand is a genuine gold miner after all the work he put in to give us this precious nugget.

    My first first free ascent (FFFA) Not sure about the grade, since I'm weak and tall, it could be easier, but also harder. Thanks Mason for the encouragement to bolt and "clean" this route, and Marcus and Maddy for support as well! Glorious day at the cave with Tony and Brian.
