Sioux City Sarsaparilla

As I stated earlier, Bohuslan is incredible. New areas continue to pop up everywhere and there is no end in sight. A recent exploration rediscovered some boulders I had looked at years ago and while several quality lines can be found there was one standout that would undoubtedly be the gem of the area. The initial attempt to unlock the technical double arete proved unsuccessful as a light rain and summer heat left us packing. I have a hard time letting go of problems this good so yesterday I drove the hour and a half to Bohuslan for another crack at the project.

Provided with more favorable conditions and adequate padage the project went and now goes by the name Sioux City Sarsaparilla. I also brushed and climbed two other steep problems and several other quality problems are waiting to be done.

Here are a couple pics.
