Sebastian Pacey-Smith has made the third ascent of The Bridge V12 in Nova Scotia, a problem first climbed by Ben Smith. The problem is at Owl’s House, where many of the province’s hardest lines are located.

He’d attempted The Bridge several times over around six years, according to MoBeta (Nova Scotia’s go-to bouldering source), and managed to send on the first go of the day. Pacey-Smith has a long list of hard sends to his name, including the second ascent of Kodiak and first ascents of Feedback V12 and Cipher 5.14c.

As MoBeta points out, with his send of The Bridge, Pacey-Smith has become the only climber to tick all of the routes on this face of Owl’s House – see a topo to the full boulder here.
