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.
P1 (11c): Climb a crack to a bolt at about 10' and make a tricky mantel move. Link discontinuous cracks for another 30' until some thin slab takes you out right past a couple of bolts. Trend slightly left to the anchor. (20m)
P2 (11b): Climb the hand crack for about 40' until you can clip a bolt located in a patch of very smooth white rock. Move up to a horizontal break on good holds and make a long reach to a so-so finger lock that is used to pull the mini-roof. Once over the roof, move right onto the face in an airy position and climb past two bolts to join the top of P2 of Centrefold. A great pitch (30m)
P3 (10a): Climb the 3rd pitch of Centrefold.
Descent: either walk off to the north, or 4 30m raps will get you down
