January 26, 2014 Ice Climbing Report (Thanks Peter)

Highway 5 – Coquihalla

NEW ROUTE
Under Promise, Over Deliver! 20m M8 FA Peter Watson January 26, 2014
I (Peter) established another fun Dry Tool route out in Box Canyon. The climb has some wet streaks on it, so it might actually be a mixed ice/rock route some day. Under Promise, Over Deliver! starts 5m to the left of Welcome to the Box (see Jan 24 Report). Approximately M8 (to be confirmed once some other leaders complete it). Nine (9) bolts ascend to the anchors. Fun, steep, powerful climbing leads up to a balancy arete, followed by a roof to get established over. This is followed by an easing angle ramp leading to the anchors. A fun addition to any day in Box Canyon.

  1. Hey there, how do I find a topo of the area and how do I get there? Is there a map or website I can check out for access?

    Cheers.
