      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Canada questions

Recommended Posts

So I've seen posts about great places to climb in BC, but as I'm new to climbing and haven't achieved the superhero status that the rest of you have, I was hoping that some of you might stoop and give me some remedial advice! I'm moving to Abbotsford in a couple of months and don't as yet know anyone who climbs up there. I was wondering if there were some outdoor climbing walls in the area or, better yet, just some fun real rock to climb on that's not too far away. Just something I can practice on before getting in everyone's way at Squamish...

Any other climbing-resource tips for that area would be greatly appreciated too! Thanks!

there is a crag on top of sumas mountain, there is flashpoint gym in abby, there is all sortsa shit out there. get the mini-guides to chehalis river, hatzic crag, harrison lakes etc at flashpoint, valhalla pure or wherever or wait till i write Fraser Valley Rock for Elaho ... wink.gif" border="0

if you can spot you can stand by my pad at lake of the woods in hope...and keep me from hitting the big blocks when i fall off of XXXXXXXXX* again.

Dru, last summer I was road tripping by Valhalla Prov. Park and a town called New Denver. There was a cool little crag along the lake (Slocan). Have you ever been out that way?

Thanks for the tips - I'll check those mini-guides out. I knew there had to be a ton o' shit out there, but it's not like they're listed in the yellow pages.

And yes, I can spot. The question is "Am I worthy?" wink.gif" border="0 The other question is - is an American allowed to visit XXXXXXXXX? Or would I pose a threat to national security?

XXXXXXXX will be revealed to the masses when I can get my weak ass up a V1+ overhanging hand crack to the moss carpet top out.
