Watch Send of Squamish 5.12 Biceptual Lover

Watch Stu Smith send Biceptual Lover 5.12b on the rarely visited Tower of Power wall in Cheakamus Canyon.

Smith said of the line, “It holds some of the steepest climbing in Cheakamus and in my opinion one of Squamish’s best 5.12 sport routes.”

It’s been a busy year on Canada’s West Coast with thousands of climbers getting their hands gnarled up on Squamish rock.

Below are five Squamish climbing images that landed on Gripped’s Instagram after being tagged #grippedmagazine.
