Access Issue: Illegal Camping Details

Description

The Zip crag is a small but high quality cliff featuring a must-do classic crack ("The Zip"), two sport routes and a couple of more obscure lines.

Getting There

This crag is found along the Blind Channel Trail a little past (south) of the municipal water pipe. You could walk from the road (Logger's Lane) or park at the main parking area, walk along the Valley Trail, past the turnoff to the Smoke Bluff Trail and then turn right off the trail to descend a slab beside the water pipe.

The crag itself is in a little clearing off the Blind Channel Trail and is easily identified as a beautiful boilerplate wall split by a hand sized crack.

The new Squamish guide says that this area is closed to climbing- is this still the case? I'm headed up this summer- this is one of my favorite routes in the Bluffs, and I'd love to get on it if access has been re-established. Jun 22, 2013
