Youthful Indiscretion

Have you ever fallen off a problem at the gym and blamed the route setter for your failure? Srunchy, reachy, jumpy, cruxy, bad set, contrived, no fun? The same excuses work just as well outdoors.

In 2011, a large crew of climbers set out to attempt Le Safari V7 at Gros Poisson. Everybody got shut down. Hard. Since you can exit early, we consoled ourselves that the problem is contrived. In reality we just sucked at rock climbing. To further sooth our bruised egos, Mobeta gave Le Safari the turd icon. Take that inanimate object!

We did disservice to everyone who missed out on this beautiful climb on account of our bruised egos. Ghislain was much more experienced and much more correct when he gave Le Safari maximum stars in his guidebook. It is one of the very best climbs of the grade in Nova Scotia. It deserves a priority position on the tick list of every NS climber.

Sincerest apologies,
