Blackwater Ice Climb – Squamish – WI7?

The fabulous summer sport climb Blackwater sometimes ices over, becoming a very stout-looking ice climb that must go at WI7 or WI7+. There may be some mixed climbing moves to reach the ice (M7+?).

It is unknown who – if anyone – has climbed this beast, but apparently Marc Andre Leclerc scoped the base this winter, and decided not to climb it because he didn’t want to make any drytool moves on this classic piece of rock.

I had planned to climb it the next day but the weather changed and the ice melted. Oh well, maybe next year …
