Access issues inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Be aware that there is a rare plant that calls the boulders we climb home. It is in our interest to accommodate it. More details can be found on the ACAQ web site:

Ethic inherited from White Rock Conservation Area

Redbank is home to some extremely rare plants that call the top of some of our boulders home. If there are logs defining top outs please respect these and avoid trampling anything that isn't grass. For more information check out .

Be mindful of other users, don't leave rubbish or disturb any vegetation. Stick to the established tracks where possible. Do not use steel wire brushes as these will take away the holds.

Sit start on two obvious holds and follow the left seam to the top

FFA: Neil Jenman, 1 Jul

Stand start on good side pull and sloper, straight up.

Stand start using arete, head stright up.

Sit start the right arete problem with bad feet and a low right edge move up to the LH gaston and up some cool sloppers.


Sit start with good right hand edge and low side pull, straight up for a nice short problem.

Sit start as for the V3 on good slopes, head up and left to slopey crimp then top out.

FFA: Marion N, 30 Aug 2015

The V6 sit start to number 5.

FA: Phil Beattie, Mar 2014

Stand start up the big pockets and scoops on the arete

Stand start up the right side of the arete

Stand start with bad feet, straight up to slopey rail, anything goes from here.

Start on the arete then head right to finish as for Antiquity

FFA: Sam Bowman, Jul 2013

The original line. Sit start on jugs in the middle of the wall. Head straight up and mantle out. Originally done without the side-pull at the top, if you do it this way you get an 8.

FFA: Rob Saunders, 1992

Sit-start on barely there holds, moving left into mono's and finish on jug below ferns.

FFA: sam bowman, 10 Mar 2015

Same sit start as antique roadshow prom but head right till you link into the V4 arete. A 60 degree sloper guards this beast. Definitely a hard little proj. All the moves have now been done besides the 2nd, the beasty gaston to sloper throw.

Straight up the arete for a desperate slopey mantle

Sit start and up the offwidth crack

Sit start from the large pocket, left to a crimp then tricky pulling on mediocre holds, traversing hard left then up for a fun mantle.

FA: Cal, 30 Jul 2015

Sit start up through slopey rail to sidepull and mantle.

The slabby problem stand starting on two underclings. Balancey move to a cool small pocket, then straight up to a easier finish. Cynthia named it after Pountine, she's Canadian eh!

Start inside of small cave on a massive ledge, work outwards and into the crack. Head to the start of the cave and finish upwards.

Be careful of spiders and other deadly creatures dwelling in the hole!

FA: Philip Xunlix Ly, Jul 2016

A high step to start and enough holds to keep it moderate. Boulder on L is out.

Sit/Stand start on good jugs or edges on R arete of boulder. Up and L to low face crimp then up to sidepull flake and mantle. Footwork essential.

Crimp dyno = AWESOME!!

Sit start as for Repeater, but head left to a good LH Pinch and RH flat hold, and dyno to the prominent bump on the lip and top out. Will be a V4 for shorties.

FFA: Tom Reid, 27 Sep 2015

Start on pockets, move straight up, rail-slopey slap up to the right, gaston/mantle on jug, feet up, top out

Stand start on pocket and high rail, move right to juggy sidepull and upwards

Sit-start on big flake and pockets, move straight up on slopes then left to finish as for Repeater. May add a grade or two if your under 6 ft tall.

FFA: Sam Bowman, 10 Mar 2015

Up the left arete of Gymset using only the rail for hands. Quite challenging for feet with an interesting top out!

FA: Matthew Earsman

Up the orange face with plenty of holds.

Sit start low on L side on reasonable crimps and sidepull flake. A few cramped moves on crimps then up to obvious dish, then topout. Stand start VE.

Set by Peatey & Rick Helm

Crux stand start on small sharp R hand sidepull, L on undercling/sidepull or a crimp as wingspan allows. Get on the wall static then balancy footwork or just huck to high holds, traverse L to topout over middle of bloc.

FFA: and, Rick Helm & Daniel Peatey, Jul 2017

Sit start R arete on good R hand flake then up and mantle out. Flake flexes, likely loose.

FFA: Daniel Peatey & Rick Helm, Jul 2017

Sit start the crimp rail, big move to the cool pocket then mantle. Maybe V1+?

FA: JSBC, 2015
