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.
