New Squamish 5.11 and 5.13 at Different Walls

Kyle Koroll and Ryan Davy added a new 35-metre 5.11c bolted pitch above the first pitch of Bullethead Easy and the Gift. After a short scramble up you reach the base of a short pillar. Climb it up to the first of eight bolts on clean and hard granite. Use a 70-metre rope to get down and tie knots in the end.

Eric Hughes added a new 5.13c to Rogues Gallery The Minotaur, which would be the area’s hardest route. It’s found left of Serendipity and climbs an overhanging arete after a hard problem for 25 metres and past 10 bolts. “Thanks to Robyn Richard for prepping the route and Chris, Josie, Mike for the catches,” wrote Hughes on SquamishClimbing.com.
