New B.C. Ice Routes
The ice climbing around Lillooet, B.C., continues to be developed with four new long routes up to 160 metres. Danny O’farrell, Steve Janes and Quinn Park climbed three of the new routes in December. The trio have called the area Top Gun, after the hit movie, and each route is named after quotes from the film. The area is about a 30-minute drive from Goldbridge down the Bridge River Main Forest Service Road. The majority of routes begin seven kilometres past Jamie Creek Hydro Station. The routes are: Two O’s in Goose WI4 160 m, Because I Was Inverted WI4 150 m, She’s Lost that Loving Feeling WI4 120 m and Jester’s Dead WI4+ 80 m.
