The provincial response to COVID-19 is evolving. Pay special attention to travel restrictions, climbing area closures, and direction for gathering sizes and physical distancing.

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.
P2 - climb the 'Hairpin' crack about halfway to a small alcove, then make a tenous traverse left into a hard leaning fingercrack. Battle your way up the crack with decent locks but bad feet until you reach a belay below the obvious roof/overlap feature. 5.11b
P3 - Clip a bolt and pull a V5/6 boulder problem to gain good locks near the lip of the roof/overlap. Swing your foot up over the lip, look down at the ground, let out 'whoop' and pull the wild moves over the lip! A short easy crack leads to the belay. As short pitch. 5.12b
Rap from here, one 60M rope will do. Or continue up another dirty looking pitch of 5.7 A2? as for 'Hallucination'.
