Description

The climbing here is good, but the setting is spectacular, though you may have to contend with trains. The crag itself sits just above Howe Sound. Hanging belays at high tide are not to be missed. Seals and otters frequent the cove as well. Out the traverse, best to belay the second from the top and rap back in from the tree. Two ropes may be needed otherwise, with the real possibilty of dropping them in the water.

Getting There

About 10 KM from Squamish, and 2km. south of Murrin Park park in the wide pullout with the mining information sign. Walk up the road towards Squamish wide until across from the Welcome to Squamish sign. It is possible to stay left of the road barrier for safety. Drop down to your left following flagging tape down and right to the old road, and follow this to the crag, which is below and left. Rappel with one rope on the slings on the tree. It is a stretch, but possible. It is possible to follow the road and flagging tape up to the railroad tracks and cross these above the crag, but avoid walking on the tracks. The climbs on the right of the slab must be accessed by doing the traverse first.
