Description

Leftmost Sector of The Zip area, the majority of the climbs are slabs with broken crack systems.

Access issues inherited from Smoke Bluffs

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.
