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.

This is the super-fun, juggy face on the far left-hand end of the Betazoid Wall. There's nothing else like it in Squamish.

FA: Colin Moorhead & Calvin Adams, 2011

This quality, overhanging face has a powerful crux at the third bolt. Named after Calvin's prized hen.

This short, steep route shares the same start as Beat The Clock. It's powerful and features a tough clip. Be quick!

Set by Dan Jackson, 1990

Traverse right along a sharp flake. The crux comes as you pull the lip. A small TCU at the top might be helpful.

Set by Larry Ostrander & Dave Dancer, 1988

Climb past a fixed pin in a shallow corner right of Jesus Eyes. Continue up to a leftward traverse into a crack, pull onto the Wakey Wakey slab and climb to a high anchor. The name Bellevue was given to a 1962 climb graded 5.6 that seems to match the modern line of Fallout. The disparity in grades has created much confusion.

FA: (Bellevue) Hamish Mutch & Ian Kennedy, 1962

FFA: (Fallout) John Howe & Jim Campbell, 1982

FA: Jim Baldwin & Jim Sinclair, 1961

FFA: Eric Weinstein & Gordie Smaill, 1976

Climb part way up Xodus; follow right-facing features above.

FA: Jim Baldwin & Ken Baker, 1961

FFA: Andreas Maurer & Kevin Mclane, 1975

Start as for Xodus, but follow the diagonal fault from left to right across the wall to finish on Horrors Of Ivan.

FFA: Peter Croft & Mike Beaubien, 1982

FA: Royal Robbins, 1982

Face climbing betwixt Tourist Delight and Horrors of Ivan.

FA: Peter Croft & Hamish Fraser, 1982

Climb right of Mr. O'clock past a bolt. Move into the Horros of Ivan cave; finish above on good but spaced pro.

FA: Kevin McLane, 1985

Must do! Climb past two bolts to a small cave in the middle of the wall. Move right into a crack to finish. Very popular.

FA: Peter Croft, Hamish Fraser & Tami Knight, 1982

5.13b. Moderate climbing to a brutal boulder move at the top.

FA: Jim Sandford, 1993

Start this excellent link-up by climbing to the first bolt of The Pass. Head left and up to the Horrors Of Ivan cave, then traverse leftward to finish at the top of Mr. O'clock.

FA: Colin Moorhead & Kai Hirvonen, 2000

This excellent, overhanging climb snakes up flakes on the right side of the wall. Super fun and steep for the grade!

FA: Peder Ourum & Clive Thompson, 1981

Climb either of the steep finger cracks left of Genesis. They look harder than they actually are. High Quality.

The corner. Clip the second-to-last bolt of Original Thin before face climbing out left. Hike right to the chains.

FA: Jeremy Frimer, 2009

Follow the bolt-line left of Cain and Able. Climb through the top of Original Thin to anchors directly above.

FA: Jeff Thomson, 2009

Follow a technical, angling ramp. For 5.10b, step up at the second-to-last bolt and foot traverse the ramp.

FA: Nick Elson & Jeremy Frimer, 2009
