I woulda given it 5 stars if I wasn't a multipitch trad climber lol. It's well developed, hundreds of routes, with a reasonable range of grades. Well signposted too.

This area is primarily for rock climbers. For those who would like to watch the activities there are numerous areas to sit relax and watch as climbers work there way up the many cliffs. For those who are interested in hiking this is also possible here because of the numerous trails throughout the park.

Always love this place. And we really appreciate the BC government's commitment to maintaining this jewel primarily for climbers. Don't know of any similar commitment in the States to climbers. Thanks BC!

It's a good place to go with a lot of good point of view. My kids enjoy it (13 - 11 years old). There are a lot of rocks so it could be dangerous with young kid. I don't recommend this place with them.

Ruined by thieves. So don't leave stuff in vehicles. City is starting a program funding to monitor parking. Beautiful area to enjoy.
