New Powell River Big Walls
It was a busy summer in B.C. thanks to the dry conditions that gave climbers access to steep walls in the backcountry. Around Powell River, Drew Leiterman and Travis Foster made the first ascent of the Red Alert Wall up Jungle is Massive VI 5.10 C2, 1,565 metres of granite in 25 rope-stretching pitches. Evan Guilbault and Colin Landeck made the first ascent of the new 27- pitch Sacred Stone VI 5.10 A1 up a new wall called Super Unknown, also near Powell River.
