Altus Guides get out to scrub a new route in Squamish.

Today Altus Mountain Guides Paul McSorley and Crosby Johnston went to work on a new route in Squamish. This gem of a find deep in the Squamish Jungle is revealing itself to possibly becoming a burly 5.12+ multi pitch climb.  It is a steep overhanging dihedral system stacked with steep cracks that stay dry, even in slashing rain.  The continuous crack systems will go entirely free with virtually no bolts, other than the anchors.  This wall being so steep protects itself from the rain, hence it stays dry and does not grow moss or vegetation.  It will be ready to go soon with only minimal scrubbing.  Stay tuned for another classic multi pitch in Squamish!
