Good new 5 pitch line with one truly outstanding pitch, the "feather' pitch is surely one the best 5.11's Squamish has to offer.
Approximately 40m right of Straight Outta Squammpton.
Two rope rappel gets you down in 3 rappels
Nuts and a double set of cams, include 1 #4 camalot.
The awesome "Feather" pitch
Aug 14, 2010
Just climbed this today and wanted to mention that it is possible to rap this line with one 70m rope.
Also: above the first pitch we went slightly right and up to a bolt (that is not marked on the topo) before continuing up the crack instead of left to the wide crack. This variation was easy and created less rope drag.
Finally, the start of the Feather pitch is thin before clipping the bolt and reaching the locks. I recommend that the belayer lower their stance a ways to give the leader room to climb (and/or fall).
Final, 10d pitch felt tough, but that might just be my lack of slab skills. Really cool, fun route!
