The Clean Boulders

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.

Description

located 2.4 km up the Mamquam FSR Clean Bounders is a small area with mostly flat landings. It's fantastic for a nightly solo session, or someone's first time bordering outside.

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.

Approach

drive 2.4 Km from the apron parking lot, there will be a small pullout for 4-5 vehicles on the left side of the Mamquam FSR. The first boulder and start for "Welcome" are visible directly across the road.

The right arete. Sit start on the rock and move left on bad holds. Looks like v9+

An excellent climb with classic squamish holds. Start far right matched on a sloper and big heelhook, make a few moves left before engaging a really fun mantle !!

A burly problem to the left of Stop-Motion. Started with a left hand on a good edge and a right hand on a sloppy hold a little higher. Hard first move followed by a really high left foot.
