Description Suggest change

Freshly scrubbed (2009), this formerly obscure area is now a fine little destination. As with most Smoke Bluffs areas is less-than-vertical, but it offers some excellent finger cracks along with undulating slabs. Some of the slabs are testpieces of the genre. It is broken into an upper (left) and a lower (right) area separated by a short stretch trail.

There appear to be quite a number of new routes here too recent to to be in the 2005 McLane guide book. Most are on the lower crag, although there is one very grim looking bolted slab on the upper crag.

New route descriptions are likely in the new route binder at Climb On on Squamish. One new route is on the left side of the lower crag and is distinguished by being just right of the dirty gully and having two or three bolts in the thin and slabby upper half. It's reasonably fun and goes at about 10c.

Getting There Suggest change

This area is just off the Loop Trail between the Elephant's Arse area and the Octopus's Garden. A sign post beside the trail points the way.
