First ascent on pitches 1 & 3 free.

Had to hang dog on the first bolt of the 2nd pitch - offset and overhanging - very pumpy.

The wall gets pretty dirty beyond the third pitch. The route ends there for now.

Route was put in over the course of 5-6 years with a lot of time gaps by Travis Sanwald (Squamish), Todd Newton(Kitimat), Scott McLellan (Smithers), and myself of course Scott Newton of Kitimat.

The chain was used on the traverse on the 2nd pitch as a safety measure to prevent a rope tearing fall.
