Signature Cave

Well, after months of putting it off due to various reasons Josh and I managed to finally get out and do some problems in the big limestone caves at Wee Jasper.

The bouldering was (mainly) steep and burly roof climbing on slopers and pockets. We put up a few problems... well 4...

Decepticon - v1
Pockets Of Convenience - v3
Your Turn To Burn - v4
Captain Caveman - v5

Plus we tried one other problem that we couldn't finish that we dubbed the 'Limestone Lizzy' project, which will be tough, but doable.

There is still a fair bit to do there... maybe 15 + lines all up.
The place is a little dirty... but the rock is awesome, smooth, water worn limestone... and you can put up with the dirt for the novelty of bouldering underground in a cave by lamp light!

Heres a few pics :-)
