Description 

Pixie Corner sits in the trees above the Neat and Cool cliffs, and is a perfect place to bring beginners or a small group of friends. The area hosts a dozen or so one pitch routes, ranging from classic Squamish 5.7 to 5.9 cracks to the one of the sickest, thinnest lines in Squamish (Digital Dexterity, 12c).

The main attractions are Wonderland (.9), the Locker (.7), and Pixie Corner (.8). The last two make great beginner leads or TR's, as you can easily walk to the top of the cliff and set anchors and ropes, and/or walk off.

Getting There 

Take the gravel road past Neat and Cool, then cut left up an obvious (and signed) trail towards Octopus' Garden. Before the two flights of stairs up a small gully, go left. Pixie Corner is the massive double dihedral area, and Wonderland is all the way to the left, at the end of a slightly exposed ledge.

The "title" crack in Pixie Corner is the best of the lot, offering a fun, well protected climb up two thin parallel cracks in the back of a huge dihedral. This is a fun introduction to Squamish's unique brand of slimy finger cracks, smearing, and jamming....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
