A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

An extensive area of high quality alpine granite, easily accessible off of Highway 108. In addition to lots of roped climbing, there is a lot of bouldering potential in the surrounding area (including on the drive in).


If heading East on Highway 108, take a right on Crabtree Rd a few miles before Pinecrest.

If coming from Pinecrest Lake, follow Dodge Ridge Rd to the Dodge Ridge Ski Resort and take a signposted right turn at the welcome sign for the resort (where the one way loop starts). After a quarter of a mile or so this connects to Crabtree Rd - take a left.

From this junction the routes combine - follow Crabtree Rd to the Bell Meadows turn off. Stay left here on forest road 4N37 and drive all the way to the end, where there are several large parking lots. All of the Burst Rock climbing areas are accessed from this parking lot.

Note: Don't take forest road 4N34 from Dodge Ridge Ski Resort unless you have time to kill and/or want to go exploring. Although it connects to 4N37 at the far end, it's in much poorer condition than 4N37, and is therefore much slower (and could be impassable in early season). Lots of hunters also use this road during hunting season - if you go exploring off the road wear brightly coloured clothes.

From the parking lot (see Burst Rock access) follow the Gianelli Cabin trail for about 1/4 a mile until the trail almost reaches the same height as the ridge on the left. A climber's trail leads up and left to an old cleared area on the ridge top - cross this to an old square wooden sign post (with no sign) and then pick up a more obvious trail that traverses left and down a steep scree slope.

After crossing a steep, narrow scree gully and dropping down a small rock step, you'll reach a large area of flat white slabs - this is the top of the Genesis wall and is a great place to set up a base camp. Genesis 15 routes in Cliff
