On July 31 Matt Wilder has climbed The Path at Lake Louise Alberta – Canada.
The Path climbs up the center of a steep, tall, intimidating wall at the back of the lake crag at Lake Louise.
It was established by Sonnie Trotter on 2007 in traditional style and was given 5.14 R.
It has seen one repeat by Ethan Pringle last year.
According to Matt, "the gear is sparse and small, but the falls are mostly clean. The wall is covered with beautiful streaks and the climbing follows perfect well-spaced edges. There are several hard sections throughout the route with some ok rests between. The crux moves come near the end when you're quite tired. The route tackles the wall above an existing 5.11a sport route."
Here the video that gives a good idea of the climbing (and of protections)
