Summary

10-15 foot rock outcrops along a pleasant forest path. Bring a wire brush the tops can moss quickly.

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

Park on Park Cr. Take the trail marked Coho Park (Alice Lake). After a small wooden bridge the trail forks take the Trestle Trail(Alice Lake). The first climbs appear after a couple of minutes. Total approach sub 15min flat ground.

Start on edges at 5' in between two aretes. Move up and slap one arete then the other and work yourself up.

Start with edges underneath a short finger crack. Up to a pinch and then some ring locks.

Large scoop straight up 5' to a jugs. (Or desperate moss clawing if it hasn't been cleaned.)Slightly contrived not to use the crack on the left.
