Paradise Valley

  • Grade context: US
  • Ascents: 40

Access: June 2022 Update, Rock Closures due to Rock Fall at The Chief

Latest Closure Update:

Grand Wall closure area reduced, Grand Wall (5.11a A0) and Exasperator (5.10c) are now open.

Grand Wall boulder closure reduced to cover just the debris field

North Walls

Darkside Boulders and Angel’s Crest reopened, Debris field and all routes between Alaska Highway and Parallel Universe closed.

After rock scaling and dealing with danger trees we are happy to say that BC Parks have reduced and removed some of the closures.

Our understanding is that before reopening any of the remaining closures BC Parks is working on signage and assessing liability. Neither the North Walls or Dihedrals rockfalls would be easy to address through scaling. Squamish Access Society is advocating that the areas are reopened with climbers taking responsibility for their decision to enter them.

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.

Direct finish to On the hook.

FA: Michael Flynn, May 2015

Start at the base of the approach gully and face climb up and right to reach the crux: a banger move in the middle of the smooth wall. Surpris- ingly, it's tons of fun.

FA: Chris Singer, 2017

A difficult-to-read crux on the steep, lower wall leads to a rest and a second crux in the off-vertical terrain above.

FA: chris singer, 2018

At the Redd wall, continue right to find a few new climbs and some continuing development. Grades should be on a stone at the base of the routes.
