Sonnie Trotter has just completed a new 5.14a!
Sonnie Trotter has just completed his summer project, Castles in the Sky, on Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. The bolted route, rated 5.14a, rises five pitches up a prow on a lower buttress of the mountain. While the route features moderate pitches of rock near the bottom, a dramatic overhanging arete guards access to the route's final and easier pitches.
In an e-mail exchange with Rock and Ice, Trotter describes the 55-meter (180 feet) crux as 'lots of sidepulls and underclings ... a power-endurance climb.'
