Outdoor Rock climbing Vancouver


Canada's westernmost province is very fortunate to have some of the mildest climates in the country combined with some of the best rock and mountains around. Marquee areas like Squamish, Skaha and the Bugaboos are only the tip of the iceberg.

The bottom 10 feet will almost always be wet. However, the moves aren't very hard and you'll get a piece in before your feet are 5 feet up. Many people skip this climb because of the wetness, but the crack above is outstanding. Steep locker hand jams all the way to the top. Plenty of rests but all rests all slightly strenuous.

The Blarney Stone is only eight kilometer outside British Columbia. I added it to create more artistic balance for the map. Not much else up in northern BC to interest rock climbers.

Neither the 2013 party nor the locals in Haines have actually climbed it. However, the name Blarney Stone has used by Alaskan climbers for about three decades. Yes, I am both correcting the AAJ (sorry) and giving away highly classified information to my fellow dreamers (unclimbed wall on an unclimbed mountain).

Not to contradict Peter Spindloe (who, as you may note, lives NORTH of Vancouver) regarding flying into Vancouver and exploring British Columbia from there, but save yourself a lot headache and bother by avoiding Vancouver, BC altogether. Fly into Bellingham, WA, fill up your gas tank at Costco, and take Hwy. 1 east around Vancover. Vancouver is congested, there are "red light" cameras everywhere, and the citizens are rude (sorry, not all, just too many). We loved BC and everyone outside of Vancouver was helpful and friendly. Join the Access Society of BC and the Squamish Access Society. These great organizations help to keep our crags open to climbers!
