Luftreise is the german word for Air Voyage. Climbed there today with Derek with an 8 a.m alpine start. A chilly walk brought us to the cliff in perfect timing, as I was leading the first route the sun started to hit the face. We enjoyed the first few hours of tranquility before the weekend crowds showed up. Eric Dumerac looking scared on Scared Peaches, a ueber classic 5.12 gear route. We got on the route earlier and climbed the extension, which is probably one of the best single pitch gear routes in the Rockies. Although never too hard, after 40m of climbing I always arrive trashed and very happy at the top anchors.
The haze in the morning air is actually smoke from the BC forest fires.
