Description 

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.

This route shares a first bolt with Freeloader. Since there is not a tree anymore to chimney to the first bolt, there is an .11a move just to clip. It is precarious and a stick clip is recommended. Thin face leads to a fun 10+ layback. Quality....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
