New Squamish 5.12 on The Pulpit

Paul McSorley and Will Stanhope have climbed a new route on The Pulpit, left of the Slhanny in Squamish. The route was a combination of efforts from a number of climbers.

The new route called Industry Standard 5.12 climbs The Pulpit, a feature with a sharp prow on its left side between Dogzilla and Fog Ducker Spire.

On Squamish Climbing, where McSorley uploaded the route info, he wrote, “Many thanks to all the brothers who helped me out over the last several years to complete this project: Ross Berg, Jason Kruk, Conny Amelunxen,Tony Richardson, Chris Geisler, Colin Moorhead, Charlie Long, Jorge Ackerman, Crosby Johnston, Jamie Selda, Luke Neufeld and anybody else I’ve forgotten.”

Industry Standard is a five-pitch 5.12 with the pitches going as: 5.10d, 5.11a, 5.12c, 5.12b, 5.11b.

McSorley wrote that the route is continuously overhanging (except the last pitch) so it stays dry in the rain, but seeps in spring and early summer. “If you like wild, burly adventurous crack climbing, step right up,” wrote McSorley.
