Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot Details
There is an excellent parking lot available (thanks to the BC Climbers Access Society, I believe), but people continue to park in the residential areas anyway.
DescriptionYorkshire Gripper climbs the beautiful cracks up the center of a blunt prow left of Popeye and the Raven. Expect fairly solid finger jamming to a well-defined crux where the crack peters out.
Beta alert: I received the excellent advise to dispense with pro through the crux section. Simply load up the crack before the crux and punch through the crux moves without thinking of pro. After the crux, you should get a pretty good stance from which to place gear. The crux is pretty short and the gear before it is very solid.
