Good quality sport climbing on vertical or gently over-hanging stone. From spring to midsummer the mosquitoes can be a real problem at the base of the cliff. Be warned!
Crag is located in the hills behind the Smoke Bluffs. The rock contains an abundance of nice handholds, perfect for athletic routes. Enjoy the pump!
Access issues inherited from Squamish
There are occasional crags that are on private land (and closed) -- but generally climbing is well accepted and welcomed at the various crags and areas around Squamish.
From Highway 99, turn onto the Mamquam Forest Service Road (Forestry Road) and drive 3.6km to an obvious Y-intersection. Turn left here onto Powerhouse Springs road, follow for 1.5km and park in obvious area on the left. Walk to the end of the parking area and follow trail through concrete barrier blocks and up track to a mountain bike trail called "The Farther Side". Follow this trail uphill for 10 minutes past numerous switchbacks until you are traversing the forest below the cliff.
