Neat and Cool Rock Climbing
A climb on the Neat and Cool cliff, Squamish
|Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>|
Neat and Cool is a very popular crag both because it's not a long walk and because it has fun easy trad leads with bolted top anchors.
The 5.5 to 5.8 range here is often too crowded to bother with, but there are great 5.10s and beyond that are often available.
Walk south from the climbers' parking lot until the gravel road forks. Go left, past the outhouses, and follow the curve of the path right. You will pass several crags including Krack Rock and the Smoke Bluff Wall (big roofs). When you have a nice big crag on your left and houses on your right, you've found Neat and Cool.

: ... : Neat and Cool
This route climbs the steepest section of the Neat and Cool crag and is named for the now barely readable graffiti at its base.The steepness of the route, the slippery start and fiddly initial protection makes this route a stiff lead for the grade. It initially diagonals up and left on a finger rail, then traverses back to the right on big holds. At the end of this traverse an underclinging jamming crux leads to a fine but all too short hand crack....[more] Browse More Classics in International
