Joe Kinder Repeats Acephale Testpiece

Joe Kinder has repeated Bunda de Fora 5.14d at Acepahle in the Bow Valley.

Joe Kinder has repeated Bunda de Fora 5.14d at Acepahle in the Bow Valley. The route was originally established by Canadian powerhouse Lev Pinter and later repeated by Dave Graham. Both climbers felt the route was originally in the 5.14c/d range, but since then a hold has broken and bumped the grade into solid 5.14d territory. Kinder describes the climb as having an 18-move power resistance start with a V13 boulder problem that’s followed by a techy 5.13 finish.
