Summary

The rappel back to the scree is found at the left end of the wall on top of Whanau. It is a 30m rappel so make sure you find the centre of your rope!

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.

Approach

Driving South from Murrin Park, park at the lookout after going through Dynamite Alley. Walk back up the road (north), back through Dynamite Alley looking for a rough track on your left near a power pole. If you walk past the power pole you have gone too far. A rough track descends a scree field and bush to a railway. The crag is just across the rail down by the water. Be careful in the scree fields as large boulders may still move!!!

Best done from the ground up, or split into 2 pitches by belaying in the notch halfway along the 'Seal Cove Traverse'. Gear starts from large to small, with 2 bolts at the top.

Climb the 'Seal Cove Traverse' out to the notch. 'Sole Mate' starts just right of the belay station and heads up on small cracks and sticky slab. Fun Climb!
