New Rockies Mixed Route is Fat Tug M7+
Quentin Roberts has reported about his new mixed route in Field, B.C. on Mount Stephen. The new route is one of three to be added to the wall right of Twisted WI5. First was Nasty Habit M6+, then was Blob Blob Blob M6 and now there is Fat Tug M7+. “A fun new route to the right of Blob Blob Blob. Climb Twisted or Nasty Habit to the base of the route on top of the ledge,” said Roberts.
“Climb thin ice sheets on rock straight up from the two bolt anchor to a fixed knife blade five metres off the deck. Continue up and left on ice blobs with screws in blobs for pro. From there a one-inch cam takes you to the first bolt. The difficulty/danger of the beginning depends on the amount of ice around. From there climb technical rock between ice sheets protected with eight bolts to the upper ice sheet. Climb the ice to a v-thread, 40 metres to the ground from the thread.”
