Evan Hau Climbs New 5.14b Link at Acephale

Evan Hau has been working on a potential 5.15 at the Coliseum in Echo Canyon on Grotto Mountain the past few weeks. He took some time to climb a new link-up at Acephale called Shine Me Up Lev. On Sendage.com, Hau wrote, “Another linkup after 10 years climbing at Acephale. Happy to do it though! Climbs the first 7 bolts of The Shine, then traverse all the way to Leviathan going through the last bolt of Beam Me Up Scotty, top out on Leviathan.” In 2010, there were seven 5.14s in the Bow Valley and so far in 2016 there are over 30. Here is a photo of Hau on his 5.15 project.
