Summary

Good cragging 5 minutes walk from downtown Squamish.

Description

Smoke Bluffs are the obvious series of small cliffs just north-east of Squamish. They are in a municipal park created in cooperation between local climbers and the town of Squamish. The park is easy to get to -- 5 minutes walk from downtown Squamish, with good trails and easy approaches in the range of 1-20 minutes. They are, often, crowded on weekends. Many of the cliffs have easy top access for setting up top-ropes as well.

Access issues

Some cliffs are on private land, and closed. Others are close to private homes -- please keep the noise level down near homes, and do not anchor off fences, hydro towers, or anything else that is similar.

Approach

Park in the parking lot, and walk-in along the well-maintained and mapped trails to the various crags. 1-20 minutes.
