Participant Information

Please answer the Covid-19 questionnaire ( https://bc.thrive.health/covid19/en) and let me know your answers in the questions.

The crags in this area are across the road from the beautiful Elbow Lake. It is a great area to climb and we spent time at the Girlfriend Wall. The climbs are a little bit on the harder side but they are fun.

This trip will be a mix of sport climbing, top rope, and trad if you choose to do that. This event is not for beginners and is not a course so everyone should know how to build and clean anchors.

I have a guidebook which I will bring. Please bring:





Anchor Building Material


rope in particular 70 metres if you have it. Some of the walls are at least 30 metres. 

Trad gear if you have it. One route requires protection. 

Stick clip if you have it. The first bolts can be high. 

If there is time we might check out Hadrian's Wall, a crag across the road and up a short road overlooking the lake. Then we will spend time at the lake afterwards.

My results for the COVID-19 assessment. " You Don't Appear to Symptoms of COVID-19."  Before we leave for the trip I will be reconfirming with everyone that they don't have any symptoms of the virus.

This crag is lesser known than Squamish but is quality granite. If you have questions about it, please feel to contact me directly or  join the Fraser Valley Rock Climbing Facebook group where you can find more information there.
