Description 

Located at the north end of the orange gas pipeline that spans the Fraser, off Highway 7(across the Fraser from Flood Falls). A selection of mostly mossy and unexplored crags and boulders dot the south-facing hillside. There are also a few good ice routes here in winter.

Getting There 

From Hope, drive west on Highway 7 past Landstrom Ridge until you reach the orange gas pipeline. Pull off and park on the north side of the highway at a paved loop road near a yellow gate - don`t block the gate. Walk back on the gated old road to reach the crags.

This route was established as a roped solo aid climb. It takes a prominent, clean right-facing dihedral through a roof, with thin moves (hook and knifeblade) to start then widening cracks with good cam placements. Above the roof, the crack widens, becoming a mossy offwidth with some mandatory free-climbing (5.8, #4 Camalots). At a ledge about 5m below the mossy slabby cliff top, the route finishes at a bolted anchor. The bolts used on the FA were the wrong size for the drill bit and are on...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
