Smoke Bluffs

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

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.
