Some of the best quality rock on the Sunshine Coast with the exception to the Sechelt area bluffs. Secluded bluff which offers a few short sport routes with a number of longer mixed routes in progress. East facing so it is nice and cool on those hot summer evenings. Usually windy so bring a warm coat for belaying.

Getting There 

Head up highway 101...turn up trout lake rd and set your odometer take the trout lake rd that is to the north. Not the one by the lake.. drive 1.8km go straight through the intersection...don't go right. drive to 3.3km then turn right onto the Halfmoon Carlson FSR. At 5.6km go right (or straight) and follow this road until you get to an intersection at 7.3km. Go right and park just past the intersection. The trail is right across the road from the pullout. Go up the trail (10min hike) until you get to the clear cut. Go right and right again straight up the hill on the rough trail. You can' t miss it

Great beginner slab. Low angle with lots of easy big holds. First bolt is a bit run out for the grade about 15' up. The crux is between the 3rd and 4th bolts. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
