Squamish Ice Climb­ing

Gripped - - NEWS -

Paul McSor­ley and Joshua Lav­i­gne climbed an es­thetic new mixed route in the North Walls on The Chief in Squamish. The 250-me­tre M5 WI6 mixed route climbs a long treed-ramp to the base of two steep pitches of ice that have formed in the re­cent cold coastal weather. The vet­eran duo named their route Mother of the Wind and it de­scends fixed an­chors from a sum­mer project by Paul Cordy. McSor­ley said on In­sta­gram that an­other new route, Le Coq Spor­tif, a two pitch WI5, was opened at the Neat and Cold crag with Tony McLane and Drew De Pani­cis.
