Squamish Ice Climbing
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.
