Deep Water Soloing and Bouldering in a beautiful river canyon. Very shady, little sunlight, and cold water. Summer only. Rock quality very solid, but polished and sometimes damp from river spray.

Getting There 

Go down Lois Main until the pull out before the first small bridge, about 1km in. Park in pull out. Be very careful as this is an active logging road. Trail slightly hidden, directly across from pull out on opposite side of the road. If you cross the bridge/river, you have gone slightly too far.

Two potential starts. 1) Travers across canyon and start at the roof/down climb to ledge. 2) Swim over (bring your shoes and chalk and a towel) and start on ledge below roof. *True start = starting on this ledge. **Grade unconfirmed, cleaned and climbed 3 years ago, top may be dirty - fairly easy climb, but interesting crux to turn the roof. Climb passed the crux roof, then continue slightly right and straight up....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
