The team of Lyle Knight and Marc Piche have bagged the first ascent of a long difficult ice route on the Enderby Cliffs in the North Okanagan.

The team of Lyle Knight and Marc Piche have bagged the first ascent of a long difficult ice route on the Enderby Cliffs in the North Okanagan.  

Knight describes Mythologic WI6 140 m as “a skinny version of Nemesis in the Rockies” with “consistently hard” climbing for the entire route.

New climbs of this length and difficulty are rare and finding such an unclimbed line in the Okanangan Valley, a region not known for difficult ice climbing, makes Mythologic even more special.
