Description 

This is an adventurous southwest-facing crag just outside the boundary of Davis Lake Provincial Park, east of Mission in the Hatzic Valley area. The crag is granite, about three pitches high and southwest-facing with some loose rock in broken corners, but generally solid overall, with positive holds.

Getting There 

From downtown Mission, follow Highway 7 east to Hatzic Lake and turn north on Sylvester Road. Follow Sylvester Road north until pavement ends and it becomes the Lost Creek Forest Service Road. Drive the Lost Creek FSR for 1km to Murdo Creek, cross the bridge over the creek and continue 300m or so further. Park in the obvious pullout. The lake is downhill to your west and the cliff is quite obvious uphill to the east above a forested talus slope.

There are three pitches. The first pitch is a somewhat grungy approach pitch (5.7, minimal cleaning and minimal pro, 35m) that climbs up and right across an edgy slab to gain the higher ledge.The second pitch begins near the right edge of the higher ledge and climbs up and left on a slab to gain a vertical face with good edges (5.9, two bolts plus gear to 1.5").There are two options for the third pitch. Move well left and climb blocky arete and thin crack, then traverse far back right to belay, ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
