DescriptionThe 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.
Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot Details
There is an excellent parking lot available (thanks to the BC Climbers Access Society, I believe), but people continue to park in the residential areas anyway.
Getting ThereThis 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.
