Finally got inspired to add a map of the Summit Cliff. I only put in the routes that have names in the guide book. There are many mystery bolt lines and projects including a few upper pitches and 2 lines to the right of Karmic Realignment that are unfinished and or unclimbed.

oops.. I forgot to label Northern Lights 5.11a but its the little line above Northwest Passage... Not sure how accurate that line is since I've yet to do the route... All I know is straight up from the NWP anchor...

Looks Good.

I'm surprised you haven't done Karmic Realignment yet, Lee, or put it in MP, being into cracks. It is a pretty cool roof crack. I thought The Gospel was pretty good too, though last time I saw it the finishing hand crack had gotten revegetated. Keith's Visions of Jerusalem kind of squeezes that route, but it has fun moves. I don't remember enough details of the routes, so I'll leave it up to others to post them.

Maybe if you put the open projects in somebody will get up there and finish them, at least the furthest right one up the gully that is all bolted (hard 12 and very good)

My reaction when I first walked towards Yellowknife and looked up at the summit cliff: "Holy shit! There's another 'Main Cliff' up here!! Does anyone know about this??!" Hah

Jeff- i remember you saying that back then haha...

Mark- the only thing that holds me back from doing these routes is getting partners to join me... Karmic Realignment looks awesome for sure! and i will get on your project route(s) when i can find a partner that is interested... Maybe some warm winter day ill get out to play some Summit games :)

It can get pretty dangerous up there in the winter if ice is falling since you are in a chute, so watch out. It is more of a dry season Summer/Fall area.

Ive done all but a few of these now and there are some great lines up there! if more people went up there they would clean up well...

my one word of caution is to take care on the approach and decent... the fixed lines are a help but they are getting old and a tumble down the gully could be your last... ill try to replace the rope if i get a chance...
i would love it if we could put in an orange crush style stair case here to reduce erosion and make it safer... catch 22- no one goes up there so its tough to put work and money in to it, but if we dont make it accessible no one will use it haha...

very few routes up there see any traffic... ive done most of them this season and they all have a little filth on them (or a lot) but are still worth it... this route doesnt have a convenient start even by summit standards so i have a hard time finding a partner for it, i hope to do it one of these days...
