DescriptionVery shaded by heavy growth.
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 area is close to the trailheads for both the Blind Channel trail and the Valley trail.
For Blind Channel, you can see the lower wall (Fatty Bolger) right away as you walk south along the trail. The left wall of Fatty Bolger has several easy/moderate sport routes, the right wall has several 5.11 slab routes. Ferret's Folly is up and left, and has a couple of decent moderates.
From the Valley trail, you will pass a steel hydro tower on your right just before a small wooden bridge across a stream. The hydro tower is at the top of Ferret's Folly. There is a faint trail that heads down just the right of the stream, and then across to the base of the wall.
