Trip Planning Questions

What grade are you comfortable leading on gear?

What routes are you interested in leading?

Do you have a rack and double ropes?

Do you have a vehicle? How many passengers can you take?

Participant Information

Are your local crags feeling a little too over-run these days? Escape the Squamish crowds and come climb in the Eldred Valley! Never heard of it? Check out these videos:



and this site: http://powellriverrock.wixsite.com/cadmc

Route descriptions for Psych Slab in the Eldred are attached under "Trip Files"

*This is not a beginner trip!*

Minimum requirements: experience multi-pitch climbing and safe and competent lead belay skills

Priority will be given to those who are comfortable leading various routes in the Eldred Valley.

Some days will be spent cragging at the various sea cliffs and lakeside crags around Powell River. How much time is spent in Powell River vs. the Eldred Valley will be determined by the group.

Gear: double ropes (for rapping), rack, camping gear....
