Self Med­i­ca­tion M7 in Kananaskis Coun­try

Gripped - - NEWS -

Self Med­i­ca­tion is the new­est route on Re­hab Wall in Kananaskis Coun­try’s Evan Thomas Creek. It was es­tab­lished and sent by Seven Reed and Ryan Daniel Pat­te­son and goes at M7 over 33 me­tres past 13 bolts. Pat­te­son said, “It’s about 10 me­tres right of Su­per­model M7. Un­sur­pris­ingly, it climbs sim­i­larly to Phys­io­ther­apy M7 and Su­per­model, a cou­ple of my favourites. Pumpy Dry tool­ing on nat­u­ral holds and ice blobs. The climb­ing is sus­tained at the grade and doesn’t let up un­til you’re sit­u­ated on the up­per ice. Ex­pect a mouth­ful of dirt some­where along the way. We think it’s cool. Long draws and shoul­der-length slings are use­ful. A cou­ple ice screws are nec­es­sary.”
