We are pleased to announce that Jeremy Blumel made the first ascent of The Pegboard (5.12) on the Apron in Squamish, BC.
First cleaned by Evan Stevens in 2010, the line sits high on the Apron right before the last steep hand crack of St. Vitus Dance. According to Stevens, the line involves a lot of gear on locker fingers with no feet to a slow rising traverse.
See Approach directions below
Approach via St. Vitus’ Dance. Right before the last steep hand crack traverse. Go right at the overlap and belay on the arête. Climb the rising finger traverse to a shirt steep corner crack and mantle over the lip. Gear with two bolt anchor. Scramble to top of apron left side.
