Canada gets its first 8c+

Canada has its first 8c+, courtesy of Sonnie Trotter. Superman is in Cheakamus Canyon, Squamish/Whistler (on the western coast) and starts up Captain America, (F8c/c+), which Trotter made the 4th ascent of, and finishes up Heat (F8b) which until now had been unrepeated. He was having a busy time – he also did Pulse (F8b+) and Division Bell (8b). The climbing scorecard site 8a.nu (see link) reckons that he´s closing in on a place in the world´s top 10 for people who actually, you know, climb. There´s a page with more details about the canyon´s climbing at http://www.matthewbuckle.net/climb/bcclimbing/cheakamus.html. ( Source: 8a.nu )
