Most of Jeff's World climbing is accessed by water, so a boat or a canoe is a a good thing to have.
Much of the established climbing is actually in Canada and are accessed by first clearing Canadian customs at the port of entry on Sandpoint lake. Sandpoint lake is the next lake north of Crane lake. You can get to the climbing areas on the Canadian side of the boarder without clearing customs. To do that you have to first obtain a Remote Area Boarder Crossing Permit (RABC). With an RABC permit you can travel within 5 miles of the boarder without clearing customs. See the following web site to obtain an RABC permit. They take about 2 months to get.
If you don't have a boat or canoe to get to the climbing areas, there are outfitters that will pick you up at Crane lake and deliver you (and your canoe if you don't want to paddle the 12 miles) to the Canadian climbing areas. These outfitters will also rent boats or canoes. If you really want to get plush, gets some people together and rent a houseboat for the week. Below are some links with more information about Crane Lake outfitters:
