Multi-Pitch sport climbing

tweeek said Mon, 14 Jul 2008 21:05:08 -0700


I am living in Victoria and am dying for some multi-pitch climbing. I am only equipped for sport, with greatly narrows my search. Not looking for anything more challenging that 5.9s as this is the limit me and my climbing partner are able to sustain comfortably.

We were thinking about heading up to Greyback peak Wapiti Vally and climb the variation on Wapiti Mainline for 13 pitches of slabby goodness... First week of september. Is there anything closer than an 8 hour drive?? :) Or at least any advice one can give for Greyback??

Thanks guys!!

Go to the Eldred Valley over by Powell river. Valhalla sells the guide book. It has way more route than Greyback. on psyche slab there are eight long route 5-10,pitchs with grades 5.9 - 5.11. there are many crack route too. you need to take a ferry but still its less time than greyback and its less logging roads.

Is there multi-pitch Sport routes there though? Trying to find a guidebook now, Valhalla doesnt have in stock :(

.9 is pretty much as high rating as I want to climb if it is several pitches

Sport as in no gear placement. Eldred needs some gear. Shit dude you need to learn how to place gear, your really missing out on climbing.

Money for trad rack is more of an issue than learning :)
