Out again with Derek today, we thought we should check out the new multi pitch route in Echo Canyon. "Tall Storey" is the name and it was established over the last 5 years by the Perry family. It tackles the right hand, shady side of the Canyon and you can see the town of Canmore from start to finish. Since the route is completely bolted you only need to bring 10 quick draws and a single 60m rope. We decided to walk off but rappelling is no problem either. The 7 pitches are predominantly 10+/11- climbing on excellent rock, with the crux pitch 2 in the 11c range. The line should become a classic pretty soon and is perfect for these hot summer days.
