Passages of Procrastination, 5.6 A2 22m
FA – B.Ramsay and K.Watson, May 2009
A very fine looking aid challenge and awesome addition to the Bow Valley which requires good top stepping skills – the photos below are enough said!
Hike up Heart Creek past the Bunny Hill crag. A short distance after crossing the first bridge look to the right for a minor drainage and trail. Follow this draw until a well eroded trail leads left up a dirty hill. Hike up to gain the valley above Heart Creek Falls. Above the Falls Wall (where this aid route is) is the wall with a very prominent steep roof overhanging the creek, above the falls on the right.
This route is located towards the left end of the wall and is identified by the obvious seam rising diagonally left through the roof.
Climb (5.6) to a point just left of where the seam meets the lower wall, with one or two points of aid here. Aid the seam to a single bolt belay above the roof.
To say you accomplished this climb you will need gear to 2”, small wires, tricams, many pitons from KBs to 1/2” Lost Arrows (bring extras), some beaks and those going up here should add in some Screamers when packing the rucksack.
And Kevin Watson is cleaning the pitch in what appears to be an arm cast! wow!
