Description

Splitzville, a new trad crag located in a bucolic gully of old growth cedars, Sitka Spruce, and Douglas Fir, is about 20 minutes up the Petgill Lake Trail from the Murrin Park parking lot, or alternatively from the Watts Point road. As the name suggests, Splitzville has plenty of splitter cracks of varying widths, from tiny to off-width - think the older sibling of Octopus’ Garden. The route names touch on the common clichés and themes involved with “Splitting up”. Read more in the topo (PDF) published by Chris Small via Squamish Climbing Magazine.

Acknowledgements:
This cliff’s is the result of about 900 hours of Chris Small's volunteer labour. Route hardware was provided by the Sea to Sky Route Development Fund and its contributors. If you enjoy new route routes please contribute to the fund. It has helped support close to 500 new pitches of climbing since 2018. He also thanks the following people: Jack Fieldhouse, Roger Curry, Kris Wild, Stu Smith, Sean Clayton, and Adrienne Wheaton (Belaying and Guest sending); Mary Gillespie and Sara Price for fixed line donations; Erin Drummond, Sue Lee (Belaying); and Ashley Green and Climb-on Equipment’s staff for trail building assistance.

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.
