Description

The first section of boulders found along the beach with some of the most obvious and aesthetic problems found at HWLD. The Crab boulder marks the beginning of the bouldering area, ALL BOULDERS from where the trail exits onto the rock beach UP UNTIL THE CRAB BOULDER are OFF LIMITS TO CLIMBING as the threatened Lakeside Daisy grows on them. Please respect the guidelines set out by Parks Canada and do not clean or climb these boulders.

This restriction is really not a problem as Shelf Beach offers a great concentration of good to excellent problems. The classics include Queensnake, Rusty Blackbird, Cedar Arete, The Whale, and The Crab with many other worthwhile problems scattered about. Many groups never move beyond the Shelf Beach, especially on their first trip to the area due to quality of problems found here.

Getting There

After exiting from the trail onto the rock beach, turn left (NW) and scramble over small and large rocks until you encounter The Crab. Both The Crab and The Whale boulders are very obvious and visible from a distance.
