New Black Canyon Route

In October, Chris Kalous, Stephanie Bergner and Josh Wharton climbed a new 14-pitch 5.12 in the Black Canyon of Gunnison.

Wharton said of the route, “The first 5.12 pitch is one of the coolest, most unique pitches in the Black. The route climbs relatively long, because it lacks the very easy middle section found on most of the routes to the left. All the climbing is reasonably well-protected by Black standards, and there is very little choss.”
