West Coast’s new Vangaurdia
The West Coast season of new-routing has picked up again after a dry spell during the heat wave.
Brette Harrington climbed a new 5.12+ just south of Squamish.
The route is on the Fferys Wheel crag near Gonzales Creek. It’s a mix of bolts and thin gear.
“Harrington finished scrubbing it this spring and left it all summer, then fired it on her second attempt,” said Squamish-based climber Marc-Andre Leclerc.
