Description

The city of Vancouver is the biggest in BC and home to lots of climbers. The closest "good" climbing is in the direction of Squamish, but the locals have combed the woods and coasts and haven't come up empty-handed. There are some established small crags and bouldering areas good for a short day or a workout.

For argument's sake, let's include everything south of Porteau Cove in this area to distinguish it from Squamish.

Getting There

Big City. Hard to miss.
