Jason Green has reported about another new climb on New Delhi Cliff in Squamish called La Princess.
The seven-pitch 5.12d is mostly bolted, but Green notes you’ll still need a set of cams, 12 quickdraws and a single rope.
The first ascent was on July 2 by Green and Tristan Baills. It climbs five pitches of the striking arete you can see from a distance.
The first two pitches go at 5.10, then there’s a 5.11b pitch before the technical crux pitch of 5.12c. Another 5.12a pitch leads to the powerful 5.12d crux and into easier climbing.
Watch Green on the crux below.
Some #buttshot video clip of me pulling the crux on pitch 4 of “la Princess” The last time I tried this pitch it felt so beyond me but with some French motivation I sent second go! Thanks for the encouragement Tristan! #frenchguides #grippedmagazine #valleycliffeclimbingclub #arcteryxkitsilano #climbonsquamish #newrouting
