Shannon Falls Provincial Park is reported to be the most often visited Provincial Park in BC. The climbing here is very good and the approaches are not long. Despite those advantages it doesn't seem to see that much climbing traffic. Perhaps the tourist popularity of the area is seen as a detraction.

A sublime route.A bit more technically difficult and heady than its bolted neighbor Hungry Wolf (even though they share a similar grade in the guidebook), Never Say Never may be one of the finest routes at the grade in Squamish IMHO. Start on a slab and into a corner that quickly steepens to overhanging. The crack begins as hands/fists and narrows to fingers. The crux comes near the top of the corner as the locks become flaring, spaced out and insecure. Above the crack the difficulties contin...[more] Browse More Classics in International
