McTech Direct (Solid 5.10 Offwidth) – Bring the BIG STUFF!!

After the injured climber was successfully airlifted out of the col, we had no time left for Sunshine Crack (it was already 6pm) so we booked it over to McTech Arete, where I made use of the wide gear to climb the direct version of the route, a 45m sustained 5.10 offwidth crack, 4 to 5 inches wide the entire way. This was probably the best pitch of climbing I’ve EVER done in the bugs, similar to Split Beaver in Squamish but so much longer. With two fours and two fives, I certainly put the BUMP in the bumpity-bump-bump
