Provincial Travel restrictions
Parks and Rec Site Closures
In addition, there is an access concern about illegal camping:
From the Squamish Access Society website:
District of Squamish provides the following guidance on its website: “Camping is not allowed on District or private property, unless the property is zoned specifically for that purpose. Crown land does not fall under this restriction, however within District of Squamish municipal boundaries, District bylaws do apply to open fires, littering, wildlife attractants, noise, and environmental concerns. District Bylaw Officers can and do attend many unauthorised campsites in order to enforce bylaws.” In correspondence, the District also added that: “Camping on municipal streets or municipal or private parking lots in the District is not permitted under any circumstances.”
From Peter Winter: DO NOT CAMP ALONG THE MAMQUAM FSR BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES STAWAMUS RIVER. THIS MEANS NO VAN CAMPING OR TENTS. THIS AREA IS BC PARKS AND IT IS ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO DO SO. THIS HAS BECOME A VERY SENSITIVE ISSUE. THERE IS FREE CAMPING AT THE CHEK CLIMBING AREA AND NEW, CHEAP CAMPING HERE.
P1 - 5.10c (45m) Starts just left of Phillistine Groove (the dirty looking corner system) on the forested ledge the leads to the start of Borderline. The first section is up steep and broken rock and the bolts are plainly visible from the approach trail. Pull through the steep rock (5.9+) and onto a long, low angled arete. Balancy, well protected climbing (5.10c) leads to a bolted anchor
P2 - 5.11a (15m) - Cruxy climbing through two bolts right above the belay. I ended up pulling into the groove for 10 feet and then back out onto the face for the last bolt. After clipping the last bolt, more hard moves on the face lead to the anchor. You could stay out on the face, but there weren't any bolts and it seemed natural to step right.
Descent - Rap the route with one rope via two rappels. These anchors are the common descent from the Terrace, so expect company on busy days.
