Powell River offers excellent climbing. Everything from bouldering, sport, and trad. The Eldred Valley has enough rock to easily rival Squamish. The Climbers Guide to Powell River is available at MEC and at the following locations in Powell RIver: Breakwater Books, Powell River Outdoors, and Powell River Tourist Info Center.
