Watch a Send of Jason Lives at Back of the Lake

Watch Nathan Leblanc-Limoges climbing a classic 5.12d/13a at Lake Louise. 

Jason Lives is a classic sport route at the quartzite crag, Back of the Lake, at Lake Louise. It was first climbed by Marc Dube in 1990. With only six bolts, you have to stick clip the first two off a large boulder behind the route.

The climb follow thin horizontal crimps with big reaches between. Some call if 5.12d and some say it’s 5.13a. Visit Sendage.com to see who thinks what.
