Description 

Granite boulders on a hill just below a multi pitch wall. Can get very hot in the summer as this area sees mostly sun during the day. The lakeside setting is nice during the summer and a great place to swim.

There are around 90 problems, including some hard projects, some great single and multi pitch climbing, and this area is also home to the mega classic - Suspension of Disbelief.

Boulders and main wall dry quickly.


Getting There 

From Vancouver take HWY 7 east from Mission to Morris Valley Rd. Make a left onto the FSR at the first 4 way stop. Follow this road for about 10 mins up to the lake. The boulders are at the opposite end of the lake. Park at the large pullout. From the east take HWY 7. Make a right on the first gravel road after crossing the swing bridge and continue straight through the 4 way to the lake.

Suspension of Disbelief V10 7C+  North America : Canada : ... : Elbow Lake bouldering
Start down in the cave on two smooth edges, paste your feet on, and throw for the fat shelf. Use some trickery to make the 4+ foot reach to a couple of small insets on the roof and continue climbing through the roof and finish up using the arete.20+ moves in almost 30ft of climbing with almost half of that on a roof. Can't get any better than this. I have to rank this problem up there with Blade of lightning, Leviathan, and Nautilus as one of the best in the Valley.A solid SDS project will add a...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Keith Hunter put up a few nice pitches on the left side of the multi-pitch wall a few years back.  Beautiful granite which needs more traffic.

Climbed the two single pitches left of the multi pitch wall. Super fun, could use some more traffic! Guessing they are 5.9 and 5.10+(tougher direct start but you could bypass) but very fun climbing on great rock.
