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.

A little ways past the Common Wealth are two recently developed (2013) cliffs: Quercus Cliff, and The Valley of the Lost Tribe.

Details on these new crags are available at quickdrawpublications.com/ . See the Free Downloads page.


Getting There 

Take the trail around the right side of Browning Lake. After the picnic tables, take a good trail that branches right. This is the trail that goes towards Petrifying Wall. Lakeside in the Woods is the first cliff you will encounter. The other crags in the area are to the north (right) of Lakeside in the Woods.

Follow a steep hand and fingers crack in a right facing corner to just below a chimney/roof. Make a traverse right along a crack then climb up into the chimney. Climb cracks on the wall that lead out of the chimney to the top of the wall. A fantastic route, and very atypical for Squamish....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
