Sebastien Lazure is one of Quebec’s best all-round climbers, with sends of V14 and 5.14b. He recently recovered from a broken wrist and to celebrate he sent Niagara Glen’s hard V12 called The Phoenix. On Sendage.com, Lazure joins Tomasz Wojtkowiak and David Heerema with sends of the classic problem. Once graded V11, Wojtkowiak said it still climbs at V11 if you use a knee pad, but the overall consensus is that it goes at V12. Watch a send here.
In 2012, Lazure sent Supernova 5.14b at Rumney in New Hampshire and in 2010, he sent Madiba V14 at the Rocklands. Lazure has 25 V12 sends recorded on his Sendage.com card, which you can see here. For an online guide to bouldering at the Glen, see here.
