Directly south of Emerald wall is Browns Bay. Midway down Browns bay on the east side is a crag that has the potential for about 12 routes. There has been some development there and exist a couple of good lines, including a nice 10a trad climb. There are a couple of routes listed that we toproped also.

Getting There 

If you are boating up from Crane lake, continue past Canadian customs and go through King Williams narrows. After passing through King Williams Narrows head North West down Grassy Bay. Continue down Grassy bay until the bay opens up toward the end. At that point stay south and enter Browns Bay. After getting into Browns bay, you will see a cliff on the East side in a little bay. It has an obvious 6' roof that can be seen from the lake.

This is a great area as well. In 1998 I kayaked there with all my climbing gear and made some attempts.
