Description Suggest change

A large slabby granite dome located immediately northwest of Coquihalla Pass and easily accessed from Highway 5. Rock quality is variable but generally good. The ease of access, visibility and short approach have led to many climbs being established.

Getting There Suggest change

From Highway 5, park at Zopkios Rest Area and walk east along the highway about 1km. A cairned trail leads upwards to the base in about 30 minutes/300m elevation gain.
