Murrin Park is an excellent collection of granite crags just south of Squamish. The variety of climbing is outstanding as there are easy slabs, excellent trad routes at all grades, big overhangs, long vertical sport routes, and testpiece cracks.

Most of the cliffs are east facing making for shaded afternoon climbing on hot days. Some are secluded enough to make for peaceful days even on busy weekends. The lake a great place for a dip to cool off at the end of the day.

Getting There 

Driving north on Highway 99 towards Squamish, you pass through Brittannia Beach with its gold mine tour and tourist shops. The road then climbs a continuous hill and after a few curves you'll see Browning Lake on your left and signs for Murrin Park. Pull off into the parking lot just past the lake. Pay if the machine is working and you don't want to live on the wild side.

Start just left of Zoe and work through progressively thinner edges. Your footwork will be tested here. A couple of big reaches take you to a very difficult transition from being splayed out on the wall to underclinging while leaning back to keep your feet smearing on a smooth vertical wall. Work your way along the undercling until it curves up into a layback. The final headwall is easier but the glacier polish isn't forgiving if the earlier sections have left you pumped....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
