DescriptionWhile not endowed with a large number of climbs, this crag has several good, vertical to overhanging cracks. This is a nice feature considering that the vast majority of Smoke Bluffs climbs aren't overhanging.
The classic "Split Beaver" (5.10b) is the main draw but don't miss the two 5.9s.
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 ThereSplit Beaver is above the left side of Penny Lane. It's reached by going up the stairs near Pixie Corner and taking a side trail to the right at the top of the stairs. After a few hundred feet a small trail will break of to the left at which point the crag ought to be visible. If you missed the left, you'll know you've gone too far if you end up at Ronin's Corner.
