XENA – V9/10 ****
Likely one of the finest power crimping lines in the West Kootenays. This 30 degree overhanging line doesn’t let up, especially because the crux is right up top. The first ascent was done by Tosh Sherkat (who also added another line ‘Athena’ V10/11 to the left). This climb is a new classic in the Norns Range.
