This is a roadside limestone crag on the south side of the Chilliwack Lake road at the mouth of Slesse Creek, just west of the Slesse-Borden Forest Service Road. There is a long bouldering traverse, a number of straight-up problems, and a few (one and a half?) sport routes. The bouldering is overhanging, pocketed, with a soft sandy landing, and stays dry in the rain. The limestone is waterworn and solid. Downsides include a shady, sometimes mossy ambiance and the presence of a fishermen's parking lot close by - they come into the seclusion of the trees to crap before/after fishing and leave turd piles behind. Watch your step!

Getting There 

Drive Chilliwack Lake Road c. 30km east from Vedder Crossing to Slesse Creek. Just before Slesse Creek, park in the gravel pullout on the north side of the road. Cross the road and find the climbing in the trees just off the road.

Start on the low shelf on the far left, do The Full Traverse, and come back. Pumpy. The finish actually mantles the big shelf, but most people just drop off....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
