To Tame A Land, A2, 20m
FA – G.Cornell, Sept.2001
This north facing aid problem is located high up Barrier Mtn. opposite a stones throw from the sport slab Slogger’s Dream Wall. It was quite an experience done solo and under
snowy conditions and burdened with aid gear, it’ll make a tiring workout. Park as for Barrrier Bluffs, hike up the drainage to the Amadeus waterfall(1-1.5hrs). Walk left up the grassy field to the end of the wall. Turn right, slog up a shifting bad angled gravel slope for about 5m. The route only climbs the wide crack in the upper half, but takes the left-trending thin break up to it. A solo anchor can be made at the base. Aid past a pin and up the seam to a rivet. Swing left into the wide crack and up to a 2-bolt belay.
Gear:KB’s, Tri-Cams, hexes, and a full set of nuts.
