We checked in with Marco Lefebvre to see what has been going on in the Fraser Valley over the past week. Here is what he had to say.
‘Mike Crapo did a first ascent of a problem called Trepanning (V6) at The Stacks. The problem starts with a roof to prow offwidth and ends with a press out mantle on a steep, featureless slab. One of the best offwidth problems I’ve been on in The Valley. I then added an extension to his problem, Trepanning Ext. V7, that climbs Trepanning and transitions into the right side lip to finish with a pumpy 30+ ft uphill traverse with a press out finish.’
Marco also noted a new problem in The Chambers called, The Force Awakens (V8), that follows awesome edges and pinches to some big moves and finishes around 20′ up through a big hole at the top. The Stacks is a new area that is also in the Hunter Creek chain. With all these new problems, I am sure they need a few visitors! Stay tuned tp Squamish Climbing Magazine for any Fraser Valley News
