DescriptionEast facing shady crag in the forest on Sumas Mountain near Straiton. Mostly moderate climbing, and never busy. The closest crag to Abbotsford. Needs some TLC if it is ever to become popular.
Originally developed in the early 1990s, the crag fell into disuse before a second wave of development (sadly with some retrobolting of established trad lines) c. 2001.
Private property Details
This crag is apparently located on undeveloped private property. Although access has not been an issue in the past, climbers should recognize the owners' rights and obey any posted signage with respect to trespassing or parking.
Getting ThereFrom Abbotsford, drive north on Sumas Mountain Road through Straiton. Park at the top of the hill about 500m south of Foxglove Lane, with a quarry to the west, and follow an overgrown dirt road/trail downhill and across a creek. Pick up a trail and follow it to the base of the crag, past a large boulder with a couple of V0 problems, in about 5 minutes hike from the road.
