Marriage Box (5.12a) Grotto Canyon

Climbed the amazing four pitch Marriage Box (5.12a) on Tall Storey Wall in Echo Canyon – what a spectacular, sustained climb with four 40 meter epic pitches on perfect overhanging limestone! Thanks to Greg Tos for putting up this gem, one of the best in the Rockies. I onsighted my two 11d leads in cool shade, Tom took the two 12a cruxes which by then had become hot and sunny, but Tom nonetheless cruised the cruxes. Lots of backclipping on the first two raps, with one of them being a bit spooky with a swing out over sharp stone. Overall, another great day in the Bow Valley!
