Description

This is ground zero for boulder development in the Fraser Valley. A 1km stretch of boulders along HWY 1 with 300+ problems which include three of the best problems in western Canada, Leviathan V9, Blade of Lightning V10, and Nautilus V10.

This was the first area in the Valley to see development back in 1998. Lack of traffic over the past few years has caused second growth to appear on most of the boulders, but a large scale cleanup is now underway.

Getting There

The boulders are located on the south side of Hwy 1 in the Hope direction about 1km past the Hunter Creek exit. Most people park on the grass right off the HWY (this is illegal), while others will drive right up to the boulders using the pipeline clearcut (having a 4x4 is a good idea),and some climbers park at the Hunter Creek rest stop and make the hike up Hunter Creek Road and then cut back down onto the HWY.

There is now a large clearing at the Big Bang Boulders which can also be used for camping. You can access all the areas by following the 1 km trail that runs along the tree line. You will see access trails to all areas.

Yes. They are about 1 km past the Grid on the south side of the highway. Park well of on the highway shoulder where you can. Not busy these days and you will want to bring a brush along to reclean some holds/problems. Aug 29, 2017

I"m having a hard time finding these boulders. From the hunter creek exit are they *east* along the highway? Are they past the "the grid"? Aug 27, 2017
