SOMWOW (Aug 1st, 2016)
BC Day stat holiday turned out to be a fine day for a roped hike; today, with a severe thunderstorm watch for most of the southern interior, not so much. With the one exception noted below, all is in good condition on SOMWOW, with many TRs on the interweb.
Similar to Nick E's post about Speedway relatively recently, we found one hanger bent on this climb (second bolt on pitch 10). It may be possible to clip it with a smaller / thinner 'biner but angles & forces would not be ideal so we skipped it.
Conditions: We climbed the route as described, tiptoeing across several small drips below the UFO (pitch 8 - rope got a little wet) and also some damp spots on pitches 12 and 14. Pitch 13 was nice and dry.
