Monthly Social – Tuesday November 21

It will be time for our AGM followed by Mark Carlson who will enthral us with the tales about the new route he and Tyler put up on Goat Buttress!

The Fluffy Goat Butt-face is a 600+m face climb on the imposing Goat Buttress. The (possibly?) unrepeated route is a blend of alpine sportaineering and vertical cragging up to 5.11 in difficulty. It is an all-you-can-eat limestone buffet for the average Bow Valley sport climber.

Mark Carlson has prepared tales of developing the route ground-up with Tyler Kirkland over a 2 year period. It was a 600+ hour adventure full of harness chafing, haulbag riding, hundreds of meters of fixed rope, kilometers of jugging with heavy bags, dead- ends, big trundles, photo shoots, and hidden treasures.
