A world-class bouldering area at the base of the Chief, situated in a magical forest. The bouldering stretches from the pay campground all the way to the apron, with standout boulder problems and some great sport lines.
A great place to be in the summer, because it's always shady and cool, and you'll need those cool temps to stick the myriad of slopers on the heelhooking lip traverses scattered throughout the area.
Though ther are too many classics to name, but some standouts include BoBo Jones (V3), Easy in an Easy Chair (V4), the Viper (V5), Babaharidas (V7) and Wormworld Cave (V9).
How do I find the problems?
Unfortunately Squamish is getting very busy these days, and finding parking in the summertime can be difficult, especially on weekends.
The Grand Wall boulders are quite the maze, and finding your problem can sometimes be difficult. I highly recommend buying the excellent guidebook Squamish Bouldering from one of the local climbing shops. This book includes excellent maps of all the bouldering areas in and around Squamish, and includes a list of Top 100 problems that will keep you busy for a long time.
Baring that, the areas on these Mountain Project pages are roughly organized from south to north.
The southernmost trail head leaves from the northernmost end of the higher parking lot, and accesses the Titanic, Survivor, and Thighmaster areas.
The other trail heads are accessed from the old road known as Psych Ledge. The first trail along Psych Ledge leads to the Black Dyke boulder and access the Black Dyke and Viper areas.
The second Psych ledge trail is recognized by a BC Parks sign and accesses the Superfly, Octagon, Mantel Madness, Lipsmack, and Easy Chair areas. This trail continues up to the base of the Grand Wall to access routes such as Exasperator.
The third Psych ledge trail is just past an outhouse and accesses the Animal Magnetism and Heartbreak Hotel areas, as well as the Cacodemon Boulder where the route Dreamcatcher 5.14d is located. Continue up along this trail leads to the Gilligan's Island, Ride the Lightning, and Wendy World areas.
Further along Psych Ledge accesses the Apron boulders.
