Lyle Knights, "Central BC Rock" will be coming out in PDF version for the summer season. The acutual book has been out of print for some years now and is the only detailed climbing guide for Central BC. In the true spirit of Rock climbing, Lyle graciously agreed to let climbpg photocopy the Prince George and Ft.St.James rock climbing area's. Anyone who is interested in copies can email firstname.lastname@example.org. As soon as climbpg finds out where Lyle's PDF version will be posted we'll let you all know! and in the true spirit of giving, I'm sure everyone will support his new PDF download.
A new project to the right of Triple stiple has just been sent. Hamburger Highway 5.12a is a short 15m climb which starts out on a slightly overhanging wall. This climb is super fun with lots of differnent moves. The climb starts off with a few powerful moves and leads to your first hamburger. Getting over the lip is difficult since you can't see your feet, it's all about balance. The next moves require balance and finess. A large side pull gets you up to the second hamburger. Gain the slab, holds seem to peter out at the top but they are there. The final crux at the anchors is cool. "Super Climb" It's recommended to stick clip the second bolt at this time. (FA: Laurie Saindon 2011)
ASTRO SLAB AREA is found in Seven Heaven Left. This large area now contains 7 bolted routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.11a/b.
"Astro puppy 5.11b" tricky start leads to easy 5.10 climbing on great holds. Turns vertical at the top where some funky footwork is necessary.
"Astro Turd 5.11a" Easy 5.10 on clean slab, nice mantle leads to a blank face. Tricky footwork and small crips lead to the anchors.
