Godman Creek is a small tributary draining the west slopes of Cypress Mountain in West Vancouver. Near its headwaters, Godman Creek flows from a small valley carved by glaciers into the side of Cypress Mountain. On the uphill (north) slope of the small valley are numerous small southwest-facing cliffs ranging in height from 2 6 meters. These cliffs (the Uphill Sectors) generally provide relatively steep climbing in the sun on clean, well-featured granite, although they do tend to seep extensively after days of rain. On the south (downhill) side of the valley are two small granitic domes with numerous small cliffbands ranging in height from 2 10 meters. These cliffs the Tiers provide climbing on a variety of angles that, although in the shade, tend not to seep extensively after rain.
To get to the Godman Creek Boulders, head west on Hwy 1 until the Cypress Bowl exit; leave the highway here, and follow Cypress Bowl Road for approximately 2 km. Park just before the first major hairpin turn in the road. Follow the gated access road (the access road to Eagle Lake) north-west. Almost immediately after crossing Godman Creek you will see a small cliffband on your right above a small abandoned quarry; this is the beginning of the Uphill Sectors. After a few minutes walking, near the 1 km sign, youll see a roadway marker in the trees on your left. This is the trail that leads to the Lower Tiers. If you keep walking, the road will eventually turn uphill (right) to a large active quarry. There are a few boulders here as well, but stay away from the quarry.
