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.
DescriptionThis climb takes the most prominent of the left angling cracks in the face of the lower Crag X wall. A cruxy finger crack is passed before the cracks zigs to the right and up to a ledge. This ledge has a chain belay, but the climb continues for another 30 feet so you have the choice of doing it as one pitch or breaking it up.
Either way, the climb gets harder at this point and the corner crack above the ledge doesn't take good pro until you have made a few moves, but you can protect the moves off the ledge with a .75 camalot in a crack to the right of the corner.
Very strenuous climbing, but with good, if tough to place, gear finishes the climb up the corner.
