As Hazel Findlay put it: "The cracks aren’t like other cracks in Squamish; they are really steep and often wide, climbing more like the cracks of Yosemite than the Chief."

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.


The Long House is about 10-15 minutes uphill from the Catalan Wall.

The first cliff when you hike up.

Left leaning corner splitter that starts wide and narrows. Short but great quality and packs a punch!

This is the first section of the Upper Longhouse, also called the Main Longhouse Wall.

North facing bluff across the gulley.

50m to the right of Huckleberry Jam. A bouldery start leads to some good crack climbing

Squeeze in the bottom of the chimney and wiggle your way upwards untill you are forced out by the constriction. Continue working your up the offwidth/squeeze chimney to the top of the pinnacle. The direct finish is up the stout 4" crack on the left side. However the first ascent party climbed the finger crack on the right side.
