[TR] Les Cornes - Steinbok Arete (5.11a, 1600', ~13p) 8/18/2016

Trip: Les Cornes - Steinbok Arete (5.11a, 1600', ~13p)


Date: 8/18/2016


Trip Report:

Seems its been a few years since someone posted a trip report for Springbok Arete on Les Cornes. The logging road has gotten perhaps a bit rougher and the approach a bit brushier, but the climb is still as great as ever!


Duncan Ralph and I climbed Springbok Arete yesterday, car to car. It was a full value day and worth the effort on the approach.


Here's a link to my full trip report:



Some photos:

Photo overlay, direct start



Splitter 5.10 fist crack on Pitch 3 (direct start)



Looking up at the 5.10+ splitters on Pitch 8:



Duncan on the wild 5.8 traverse of Pitch 9:



Such solid rock for alpine rock. Upper corner (5.10) on Pitch 10:



Go right here...road is hard to see but that is a road on the right....(see my trip report for more photos and beta for the approach)
