Part 3 - Climbing
2017 was a big year for climbing. It was the year I left the gym and seriously started climbing outdoors. My home base was perfectly located; 40mins from Crest Creek Crags, a super varied basalt crag, and 90mins from Horn Lake, the ultimate in overhung limestone craziness. To top it all off, I lived in the heart of Vancouver Island’s Elk River Mountains and I could be on route for the alpine within an hour of leaving my cabin. I got to sport climb all over the island, have some great alpine ascents in Strathcona Park, and tried trad climbing in Squamish for the first time.
