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 (5.7) - From the anchor move up and right towards the large tree into a slab corner that arches to the right (slab and irregular finger crack) and build a gear belay near the tree growing out of the crack.
p3 (5.9) - Pull over the small roof around a small tree growing in the crack and move up and right before traversing back left along a crack towards a large boulder on the ledge above. DO NOT go as far as the bolt on over the rainbow. As the crack disappears tricky slab moves lead up to the ledge (crux) for a tree belay.
p4-5 (5.7) - Walk as far left and up on the ledge as possible and climb the right-facing corner in two pitches (gear anchor) to a horizontal crack under a small roof and traverse to the right.
