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.
DescriptionClimb the shallow curving dihedral on the left of the arete. Thin laybacking and delicate footwork with some tricky gear. There is much to despair.
Route 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 on the right-most arete on the upper crag X wall, near the trail.
