Yak Peak from the highway in late spring condition...


A large slabby granite dome located immediately northwest of Coquihalla Pass and easily accessed from Highway 5. Rock quality is variable but generally good. The ease of access, visibility and short approach have led to many climbs being established.

Getting There 

From Highway 5, park at Zopkios Rest Area and walk east along the highway about 1km. A cairned trail leads upwards to the base in about 30 minutes/300m elevation gain.

A four year project from Lyle, Gary and Rob finally reaches fruition.This route climbs sustained slabs and flakes between Reality Check and Hole in My Heaven. It reaches Yak Crack at the top of that route's 8th pitch, then climbs left of the finish of that route, and right of the upper pitches of Reality Check/Yak Check, to the summit.The grade can be reduced to 10c A0 by yarding on bolts through the cruxes. The bolts are significantly closer together on this one than on Reality Check....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
