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

"We want to give the climbing community an update on the current closures. At this time there is no change to the restrictions that were put in place after the Grand Wall, Black Dyke, North Walls, and Slhanay rock falls. The current restrictions can be seen on the Stawamus Chief page of the BC Parks website.

BC Parks have informed us that they are still working on danger trees and arranging rock scaling in affected areas. They have also indicated that rangers will be enforcing the closures and issuing fines.

SAS is advocating on behalf of the climbing community for the safe reopening of areas. Given the current situation, our priority is the reduction of closures within the Grand Wall boulders. Some of the current bouldering closures extend well beyond the debris field and damaged trees.

Part of the reopening process is going to involve making sure local and visiting climbers are aware of the risks of rockfall. Closures are less necessary when climbers are making an informed decision about rockfall. As we saw last year, extreme weather events appeared to be triggers, and consideration ought to be given to these factors when we expose ourselves to overhead hazard. We were happy to see a page dedicated to this issue in Marc Bourdon’s new Squamish Bouldering guide."

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

When you drive north on highway 99 from Vancouver, Murrin Park is just before Squamish on your left. Park on the parking lot next to the lake and hike on well marked trails to the crags.
