Wall 3 (east side from right to left) is believed to have the only known established rock routes in this canyon. South facing, and only 5 min from the highway. These 4 routes are on 4-5 star granite. Walls 1,2,4-10 are west facing, walls 11-20? are east facing. There is a new logging road to access stuff further up, or for the top of wall's 1-3. There is potential for a lot of new stuff here. The lighter color rock is a bit scaly, and unweathered so it needs a bit more attention than the darker stuff.
Everyone has seen box canyon. Somewhere between Hope B.C. and the Coquihalla summit look north. At no water take the creekbed to an obvious place to exit, somewhere near the base of the wall(sorry for the Bruce Fairley description!). Otherwise boulderfield.
There is a decent place to camp down the hill, around the corner to the left for a few hundred meters at the abandoned quarry.

The route lengths on the topo picture are not to be trusted. The left most route, Hot Box is more like 33 meters back to the belay spot and even longer if you go straight down.

Don't bother visiting box Canyon until the summer. We visited on May 12 2013 and found access to the developed wall was blocked by the creek and a flooded area. We were able to wade through the flooded area, however a couple of use fell in to deeper holes and got very wet. :)
Also two of the four routes were unclimbable due to sweepage.

Box definitely has huge potential for new routes.
