Like most of the crags at Murrin Park, Lakeside in the Woods faces east and gets filtered, morning sun. The climbing is an eclectic mix, with plenty of easy and moderate climbs and some hard trad test pieces.
At the south end of the wall are some moderate sport climbs (5.7-10d). The middle of the wall has the hardest climbing, including come very bold climbs: The Gunslinger (13d trad) and The Bull (14a R trad). The north end includes The Reacharound, a fantastic moderate that is included in Marc Bourdon's Top 100 Squamish Climbs.
Directly across from The Reacharound is the Common Wealth, which contains a number of mainly easier traditionaly protected climbs and is quite popular.
Two recently developed (2013) nearby crags are Quercus Cliff, which is a few minutes walk along the Murrin Loop trail, and The Valley of the Lost Tribe which is around the right side of the Common Wealth.
Details on these new crags are available at quickdrawpublications.com/

Take the trail around the right side of Browning Lake. After the picnic tables, take a good trail that branches right, signed as of 2014 as the Murrin Park loop trail. Stay right at a junction for the Common Wealth, Lakeside in the Woods, and Quercus. See the map for details.

A fantastic route that's not in the book- definitely worth doing. If anyone knows the name and FA, shoot me a message and I'll be happy to change the route.This route climbs the large, gaping, right leaning crack/feature on the left side of Lakeside (right of the gully). Climb straight up for 3 bolts, then ride the crack up and right for 5 more to the chains. Very fun, engaging, interesting climbing....[more] Browse More Classics in International
