Elbow Lake bouldering Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Three Amigas Topo
Granite boulders on a hill just below a multi pitch wall. Can get very hot in the summer as this area sees mostly sun during the day. The lakeside setting is nice during the summer and a great place to swim.
There are around 90 problems, including some hard projects, some great single and multi pitch climbing, and this area is also home to the mega classic - Suspension of Disbelief.
Boulders and main wall dry quickly.
From Vancouver take HWY 7 east from Mission to Morris Valley Rd. Make a left onto the FSR at the first 4 way stop. Follow this road for about 10 mins up to the lake. The boulders are at the opposite end of the lake. Park at the large pullout. From the east take HWY 7. Make a right on the first gravel road after crossing the swing bridge and continue straight through the 4 way to the lake.
Climbing Season For the Fraser Valley Area area.

Start down in the cave on two smooth edges, paste your feet on, and throw for the fat shelf.

Can't get any better than this. I have to rank this problem up there with Blade of lightning, Leviathan, and Nautilus as one of the best V10's in the Valley.A solid SDS project will...[more] Browse More Classics in International

Climbed the two single pitches left of the multi pitch wall. Super fun, could use some more traffic! Guessing they are 5.9 and 5.10+(tougher direct start but you could bypass) but very fun climbing on great rock.
