Description

Horne lake provides the best steep hard sport climbing on the island. If steep jug hauling and knee bars are your thing this is the place for you.

Access issues

Do not camp in the climbing parking lot. It is private property and illegal camping jeopardizes access for all. There is camping down the road at the Horne Lake Regional Park, or a multitude of other discrete spots to park for the night.

If the parking lot is full, or you can't get your car up the rutted out path to the parking lot, do not park on the road. Park at the camp ground and walk up. Horne Lake road is an active logging road and parking on the road jeopardizes access for all.

Please also respect the fire closures which sometimes take place in July and August. Check the status of the access on the strata website (hornelake.bc.ca) before visiting during these months.

Approach

Turn left off inland island highway 19 onto Horne lake road, follow this until turning right on Horne lake caves road. Drive for around 10 minutes and the car park will be up a rutted road on the right. (49.3558134, -124.7317307)
