New West Coast Winter Mixed/Ice Routes
Jason Kruk, Tony Richardson and Kye Peterson have climbed two new mixed routes in Garibaldi Provincial Park, B.C.
The new routes are on a crag above Wedgemount Lake that’s been called Rethel Headwall. On March 4 and 5, the trio climbed No Cupcakes (NC) WI4+ 140 metres and Intolerant Tearin (IC) M5+ 140 metres.
After the climbs, Kruk paraglided back to the base of the wall. “Two new and very high quality 140 m mixed lines dispatched on the Rethel Headwall in the last two days by Tony, Kye and myself,” wrote Kruk. “I just landed in the valley and am waiting for the boys to walk down! So stoked!”
