Description

Located on a heavily forested mountainside, Sully’s does not really receive any direct, open sunlight. It is shady and cool—a better place than most to climb on a sweltering sunny afternoon. Also, because it faces west, Sully’s benefits in the late afternoon and early evening from about as much sunlight as can be expected

Sully’s can be very slow to dry out after a rain, especially in the spring and fall.

It is a good place to go after work but the size of the crag and proximity to Vancouver can leave it crowded.

Sport climbing—all bolted—at a variety of grades. There are some excellent moderates, but the crag tends to feature difficult and bold sport routes that are very challenging for the average weekend warrior. Whatever the grade, the climbing is always interesting. In places, the rock is highly featured and varies from slab to overhanging with fractures, cracks, and even roofs thrown in for good measure. There is about 25 routed in total.

A topo can be downloaded here
squamishclimbing.com/topos/…
also you can find the topo on the quickdraw publications website.

Not on the topo: 2 additional 5.9s on the North area, beside "lefty" and a 5.7 as well.

A lot of the routes have the name and grade written on the rock in Black marker(insert ethical discussion here), some of the grades on the rock are different than the topo.

This description has been compiled from the topo and Squamishclimbing.com as well as my own observations..

Getting There

Sully's Hangout is located on the steep west side of Lynn Peak's long southern shoulder, within the boundaries of the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (a.k.a. the "Demonstration Forest"). Although access is available through the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, the most reliable access point is the LSCR. From highway #1 northbound take exit 22a and follow Lillooet Road north past Capilano College all the way to the main LSCR parking lot.

Parking: An alternative (although not recommended) option is to use the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park parking area. The roads leading to both parking areas are gated. These gates are closed in the evening at times which are clearly posted. Plan your visit around it, and don’t be late—especially on the Headwaters side. Search and Rescue is notified if vehicles are still inside the gates after the gates are shut.

Approach from LSCR main parking lot by the Water treatment plant:
Take the Lynn Headwaters Connector Trail north, passing the Rice Lake area at about 400-500m, until you reach the Lynn Loop Trail turnoff on the right. Follow the Lynn Loop Trail steeply upwards for about 5-10 min. Just a few steps before you reach the junction with the Lynn Peak trail(you can see the Lynn Peak Sign), look for a small cairn on the right. Step over and find a rough trail leading up the slope. Follow it and shortly the crag will loom above you 5-10 min from the loop trail.

Total approach time 20-40 min depending on how fast you want to go.
