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.
DescriptionI nice but slightly tricky hand crack starts the first third of the climb. Followed by a large blocky roof off-wide, this can be climbed directly on the right or around to the left. From the top of this block starts a nice finger crack that climbs up the main face and over a slight bulge, I thought this was the crux.
The guidebook says that the route is 22m long, if you climb the easier cracks to the top of the crag it's a full 40m+.
LocationRoute is on the Upper Crag X wall, head up the new staircase that starts the new smoke bluff connector trail just past Lower Crag X. Upper Crag X area is only 100 feet from the main smoke bluffs trail.
Starts in the obvious hand crack on the left side of the main upper crag X wall.
