The logging company is re-activating the old logging road which the trail to the crags followed. They will be working Monday-Saturday 5am-5pm until completion which will hopefully be at the middle or end of June. The work involves blasting and heavy machinery so there is significant risk to anyone attempting to pass through without getting in contact with the workers.
It should still be possible to access the Outpost but it is critical that climbers follow the procedure laid out below.
1. When you reach the parking spot at the hairpin bend make sure your vehicle does not obstruct any of their machinery or access into and out of the new road
2. There is a sign posted at the parking where the new road begins. Before proceeding make sure you call the number on the sign or make radio contact with the workers
3. Follow their instructions - you may have to wait till blasting is finished
4. Once you have finished climbing and are heading out you should call them again to make sure you are clear to hike through
A couple of other things to bear in mind:
Stay well back from any machinery you see operating and wait for them to see you and stop working. They will be cutting down trees and it is very hazardous to be even remotely near them if they haven’t seen you.
Signal might be spotty but please make sure you have contact before trying to go through the area. When we went up to test out the procedure and check it out we had no issues calling on Bell’s network.
CAUTION: Consider these climbs mountaineering routes. Always wear a Helmet. There is still rockfall potential.
To get there follow the Conroy FSR for about 2km north past The Forgotten Wall and The Crest. Turn left onto a single-track trail and follow it for another 2km. Look for flagging and cairns to help navigate you to the base of the wall.
