Murrin Park is an excellent collection of granite crags just south of Squamish. The variety of climbing is outstanding as there are easy slabs, excellent trad routes at all grades, big overhangs, long vertical sport routes, and testpiece cracks.

Most of the cliffs are east facing making for shaded afternoon climbing on hot days. Some are secluded enough to make for peaceful days even on busy weekends. The lake a great place for a dip to cool off at the end of the day.

Getting There 

Driving north on Highway 99 towards Squamish, you pass through Brittannia Beach with its gold mine tour and tourist shops. The road then climbs a continuous hill and after a few curves you'll see Browning Lake on your left and signs for Murrin Park. Pull off into the parking lot just past the lake. Pay if the machine is working and you don't want to live on the wild side.

The Flingus Cling 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  North America : Canada : ... : Petrifying Wall
This is probably the most climbed 12 at the Pet Wall. It's often called a good first 12b. It's probably not a soft 12b, but it's one that can be worked more easily than others because it gets easier as the sequences are learned.Two really solid cruxes are joined by sustained climbing and a slightly slopey finish make this a very fun outing....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
