Left of The Zip Sector is a large face sporting multiple ledges and routes from 5.6 to 10d. As of August 10th, 2020, the District of Squamish has purchased the private land. and thanks to the hard labour of many folks, this sector is clean and reopened!

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.


From the Smoke Bluff parking lot, head up the main path and turn left and enter the forest just before the small bridge. Follow this path until it pops out beside the Mamquam Blind Channel. Turn left and follow the path for about 10 minutes until a small plank bridge appears on the left. Cross the bridge and you will be at the Cliff containing The Zip, Burning Man Corner, and Boys of Porteau.
