The right wing shaped band of upper cliff.

This is the main developed area at Lac Sam.

A rope has been installed along the base of the cliff, as the base is not flat, is a bit loose, a bit steep, and a bit exposed in places.

Access issues inherited from Lac Sam

The cliffs are on crown land.


This is the cliff band nearest to where the approach trail reaches the top of the ridge line -- down and (skier's) right from that point.

For reaching the base of the climb, rappelling off any of the top anchors is generally the preferred choice. For scale, the top-of-cliff sketch covers about a 70m wide area. All the rappels except the (skier's) left-most anchor (top of Scylla and Charybdis) are less than 30m, and that one is about 35m.

There is a scramble down about 200m (skier's) left of the anchors, but it is loose dirt and scree, hard to spot, and not recommended.

Descent notes

Generally rappel or lower from anchors.

New routes welcome. Please document them on the crag.

Bolting fine; rap-bolting fine. Please bolt for safe sport or mixed routes. If a route is almost completely bolted, bolt it as sport, rather than leaving just a couple of gear placement needed on an otherwise sport route.

If something has been climbed on gear, please don't retro-bolt without FA's consent.
