Way better then Skywalker. Super fun. Klahanie was probably the hardest pitch. Linked pitches 3 & 4. Then 7 & 8, with a 70m. Wouldn't recommend linking the last 2 because communication can be difficult
Lovely pre-work romp. Klahanie Crack felt like the hardest pitch, then the slab, and then I'd subtract 1 grade for all the other pitches. Last 2 are def not 5.8 and 5.6. More like 5.6 and 5th class scramble. My fave pitches were 2, 5 and 6. The position by the waterfall is lovely. What a fun climb!
5:15am start and we had the route to ourselves! Really loved it. Found Klahanie to be the hardest as it has the most consistent crack climbing. We linked 2&3, 5&6, and 7&8- my leads were 2&3 and 5&6. Really enjoyed P5 next to the waterfall, and the fun slab that follows. Would climb again
Fun adventure with son #2 with a 4pm start to avoid the crowds. I thought the pitch 6 slab might deserve 5.9 - there is nothing like having an inattentive 13 year old belaying you to intensify the lead experience!
Absolutely incredible route. Best 5.8 Multi in Squamish. Slab is super well protected, so no worries there. The crux is definitely midpitch in Pitch 5, transferring from one crack to the other, when you're a decent bit above (bomber) gear. Tall people might think the grade is soft, but if you're below average height and have fat fingers (like me), that sequence is definitely 5.8.
Squamish version of Tak falls Minus the choss. Incredible position right beside the waterfall on p5! Link p2-3 and p7-8 for sure. Friendly bolting and nice Belays. Good on the guys who put this up! Was very wet today hah
