Nophobia M10 in Ghost

Nophobia M10 in Ghost

Nophobia M10 is the hard drytooling line in Ghost Arena in Canadian Rockies. We climb this route on 27 january 2015 (see news).

Nophobia is route of Will Gadd, Will Mayo, Pat Delaney, John Freeman. It has 5 pitches: M9, M10+, M8, M9, M8 WI4. The crux pitch originally has M11, but Will Gadd downgrade to M10+.

In december 2014 Jen Olson and Raphael Slawinski do - probably? - second ascent of this route. They both climb all pitches.

Probably our (D. Granowski and Jędrzej Jabłoński) ascent was third (?). We think thad grades for pitches of Nophobia should be: M9, M10, M7, M9, M7+ (+ WI4 if there is ice). We need two days for climbing free this route. Problem was with last pitch - without ice I think is M7+ on bolts and after that M6 on trad protection (cams to #2).

2 weeks after us route do Tim Emmet and Klemen Perl. They do almost (!) Flash ascent.
