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.
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.

Climb through the steep scoop and finish up the face using the arete. The stump may be removed in the future for aesthetic reasons but will not effect how the problem is done...[more] Browse More Classics in International
