Yak Peak – Yak Chek (5.10a)

Yak Peak – Yak Chek (5.10a)

Yak Chek is an enjoyable excursion up the slabby face of Yak Peak, combining Yak Crack with Reality Check to maximize the rock quality on the route. Car to car, my girlfriend and I climbed this 15 pitch route in nine hours, taking it easy and enjoying the views. The rock quality wasn’t great, perhaps even worse than Slesse, and definitely worse than anything you’ll find in the Bugaboos. I wouldn’t climb Yak Chek again, but I’ve heard the rock quality is much better on Rob Birtle’s new route Cardiac Rhythm: http://skaha.org/documents/CardiYak%20Rythm.jpg
