Occam’s Razor – 5.12c

12 bolts
FA: Joel Faubert


Start right of Uncertainty Principle and up a hard face to a rest a the bottom of the big flake. Cruise up the flake to the bottom of the intimidating roof and cross it wildly. A tricky face above finishes things with nice exposure. 12 bolts. Bring a couple long slings.

EDIT : Consensus is 12c.

    Really cool climbing all the way. Deserves more traffic. Maybe even 12b if you're really tall.

    The moves pulling the roof are very unique for Squamish, super fun! 12c seems fair. Definitely recommend extending draws on the traverse and unclipping the one under the roof.

    Really good climbing, the rock is like Canmore limestone fun fun. The wall gets Late afternoon shade. felt like Small sharp holds for 26c and no wind!

    Originally I thought it might be hard 5.13 because I couldn't see any holds through the roof and abandoned the project for a few years and let it sit while I did other things, mostly just climbing. Renewed interest in route development enticed me back. Turns out this thing climbs really well, and wasn't nearly as hard as I had anticipated. Psyched! Edit : Recent repeats suggest this might be 12c.
