Squamish Multi Pitch Climbing – Sunset Strip 5.10d

The summer of rock guiding keeps us plenty busy with many laps of the Chief, courses and trips in and around Squamish. How ever it always a treat to step the the technical level up and guide some of the harder multi pitch climbs!!  Last week I had the pleasure of guiding Andy from California up one of the newer long climbs on the Squamish Chief called “Sunset strip”  12 pitches of mainly 5.10 with 3 pitches of 5.10d.

This was Andy’s 3rd multi pitch climb at 17 years old.  Pretty good id say!!!!    Looking forward to climbing with him and his mom in Chamonix, France in 3 weeks from now.  The sending will continue.
