Gondola Crags

  • Grade context: US
  • Ascents: 3

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.

Summary

A collection of single and multi-pitch crags at the top of the Squamish Gondola.

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

all crags are accessed by either riding the Gondola up to its top or driving around back on a rough FSR for approximately 9km from the highway and hiking for 1.3km to the gondola peak; 4x4 or high clearance AWD is mandatory for this road.

Gondola passes can be purchased here: "https://www.seatoskygondola.com/"

If you choose to drive around back, turn off the highway at the Mamquam FSR (Apron parking lot) reset your trip odometer here. At approximately 3.8 km take a right turn past a gate. at 5.3Km take a right turn on Shannon Creek Road. Follow this road until you come to a locked gate. Park here and continue walking the next 1.3 km to the gondola peak.

Ethic

These areas are high traffic with tourists, please pack in what you pack out, including biological waste! Bathrooms are provided at the gondola Peak, about 15 min from Ultraviolet Cliff, and 30 from the Wrinkle Rock area.
