Getting There 

Walk up the Heart Creek Interpretive trail for 5 - 10 minutes and cross a log bridge, look right at the first rock wall, think to yourself, "self, you should climb that". Then go climb that.

Featured Route For First Rock

Duet 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  North America : Canada : ... : First Rock
This route is more of an approach route for Brownout (5.10c) and Potentilla Pillar (5.8), but has it's own 2 bolt anchor atop the ledge after 3 bolts. Best combined as one pitch with either of the two above mentioned routes....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
