Logging some air at the crux.

Note: This is no...

Description 

Fun, fingery, technical climbing up slightly overhanging face. Several cruxes increasing in difficulty make this a solid little line.


Note: The name, a tribute to the play on words of the climb to the right, did certainly involve a Canadian in spandex.

Ten feet left of Aurora No Boreals

Nice send Eric!!!

This is a fun, very challenging route. I can't put a reliable rating on it as I have yet to send, but it's a solid 12. The crux moves are at the very end of the climb and you're guaranteed to take a 15 footer if you blow them ... seriously FUN!

Nice send Eric! Good job to you and Geir for the line. I would go three stars in a four star system. There are some cool moves on this route and the finish is badass with a good clean whipper if you fail. A little funky rock down low is quickly forgotten once you get past it. Great addition to the crag. Will have to wait and see what Don Buland thinks but that is my opinion!

The bad ass, Eric Richard snagged the coveted second accent of this yesterday in less than ideal conditions - cold, wind, rain and hail. Nice work. Goes to show what a little motivation can do. Congrats.
