Adamson wrote about his latest new route: “This climb is found on the way to Fantastic Mr. Fox V7 at Gonzales Creek. The parking is on the right immediately after passing the creek, driving northbound from Vancouver. Walk back towards Vancouver on the side of the highway. Walk up a bunch of rocks to the base of a cliff. At the cliff, turn right and cross the creek. The boulder is in the trees, in sight after entering the trees.┬áStart seated with a good holds and a large left foot. A couple compression moves lead to a complicated sequence getting on to the slab.”
