Joy Route (5.5, 10p), Mt Indefatigable, Kananaskis 2006
September 12, 2006

After we did Gap Mountain on Sunday, me and Parisa went off to do the locally famous Joy Route on Mt Indefatigable. It takes a very prominent corner and presents about 10 full-length pitches of monotonous slab climbing. The best thing about this route is the spectacular view and atmosphere. There are some more pictures at the end of this page from the days following (and lots of snow is present in those).
