Orange Pipeline Crags Rock Climbing
Located at the north end of the orange gas pipeline that spans the Fraser, off Highway 7(across the Fraser from Flood Falls). A selection of mostly mossy and unexplored crags and boulders dot the south-facing hillside. There are also a few good ice routes here in winter.
From Hope, drive west on Highway 7 past Landstrom Ridge until you reach the orange gas pipeline. Pull off and park on the north side of the highway at a paved loop road near a yellow gate - don`t block the gate. Walk back on the gated old road to reach the crags.
