Description

To the right of the amphitheater, before the Orange Wall. Can approach from the Amphitheater trail, or by taking the lower Orange Wall trail.

The two trails meet at the base of Stage right. "Isis Eyes" and "The Body" start just left of the junction, while Air Club for Men and Jingo Choss Cave start just to the right of the junction.

Access issues inherited from Horne Lake

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.

Grade Route

Left of The Body, the first pitch follows the obvious shallow white corner (5.12c/d). The second pitch (5.11b) follows the left facing flake and proceeds upwards towards a roof and three bolts.

One of the first routes to the right of the amphitheater

First pitch is 5.10b with 9 bolts, When you see the anchors for Rampage up to your left, traverse to the left and go 2 more bolts past them to the mid way anchors. Don't go right, otherwise you will end up going to the anchors of Fifty Six. Second pitch is 10c 15 bolts. There are 2 sets of anchors at the top of the second pitch.

3 sustained pitches of good climbing. 1st pitch 5.10d: technical climbing on small chert bands. 2nd pitch 5.11c: relatively powerful moves on decent holds with small feet. Starts in shallow dihedral then moves through bulge and into chert bands. 3rd pitch 5.11b: small roof on weathered chert bands.

Starts at a flat belay ledge behind a large fir tree. Twenty feet left of the Body, and immediately to the right of 56.

This is a Horne Lake classic. Now sports midway rap anchors on the second pitch, so is possible to do it as 3 pitches. Originally the second pitch was a full 40-45m from the first pitch anchors to the top, needing 2 ropes to rappel. Do it! 1st pitch 5.10b: a pitch that traverse right up to the anchors. 2nd pitch 5.11b: Techy face climbing. 2nd half/3rd pitch 10d: Awesome climbing over a bulge on chert bands, spicy bolting.

One of the best 5.11 face-climb pitches ever

Starts just right of The Body. Follow bolts rightwards, then above the first small roofs, you have two options: either cut left back towards the Body anchors, or continue upward and rightward to a new set of anchors higher up. The rightward option has 12 bolts total.

This is a second pitch to "Isa's Eyes" From the Anchors on "Isa's Eyes", go up and slightly right following small solution pockets and nice moves to a rightward traverse and a mantle onto a large chert band.

The second pitch (10b?) is fully equipped with bolts (10?) and traverses left at the half way point before continuing up and right to the anchor. Can be accessed by climbing Isa's Eyes and moving right to alternate anchors.

Located immediatley to the left of Jingo (white cave with loose rock), the first pitch (10a) climbs to a bolt, followed by a crack, which then leads through some overhangs to a bolt.
