Leslie Timms of Ontairo recently completed the extension of her route Stratus Fear, 5.12d, at Lions Head on the Bruce Peninsula. Above the Clouds is a 45 metre 5.13a, it looks wild. Congratulations Leslie Timms on the line!
From Timm’s blog: When I started up the route I somehow knew that it would be my last trip on the this wild climb. I soaked in the rests and the views, I embraced each move, I enjoyed the ride. When I pulled the final lip, I got to live that moment that I dreamed about all summer… I screamed from the top of my lungs into the amphitheater below me, my cheers bounced off the walls below, echoing into the distance. Then I got to top out the famous Lion’s Head Lookout with my dream route below my feet. I stood on top, soaking in that panoramic view for what felt like the last time. Though of course I would be back 🙂
