Description

The Eldred Valley contains a vast expanse of huge granite walls. It will provide great climbing and a wilderness experience. There is also some excellent bouldering and hiking. Information for routes is best found here, or going to the recently opened Powell River Climbing Co-op in the Townsite Market. 

Getting There

Turn off Hwy 101 on to Dixon Road. Follow Dixon road for 5 mins until it joins the Goat Lake Mainline. Drive the Goat Main for 34 miles to the CAD Climbers Camp. Psyche Slab & Caragdur are both accessed from the CAD Climbers Camp. Access the West Main Wall at Mile 35, Amon Gwareth via the Dianne Main, and Amon Rudh at mile 39 (4wd).
