Planning on heading on family trip into the Eldrid either later Tonight, or tomorrow morning. Tonight seems like the better bet seeing as tomorrow the road is active between 6&6 and I don't have a radio..
Is route finding on the logging roads straight forward at night?
Does any one have any beta to get to Psyked slab?
As a worst case senario would anyone in PR have a radio they could rent me for the day to call out my kms?
Commercial traffic on roads is minimal these days, as shut down for fire season. Caution still advised.
Eldred camp trailhead is @ mm 34 on Goat Lake Main.
Trail to routes on Psyche Slab 20m further on right.
Feel free to PM if you need anything.
Forwarding Christie Dionne's invite to anyone keen.
Good event, celebrating good climbing, good folks.
Also celebrating the Birthday of Colin Dionne, and his enduring positive spirit in this place.

Sunday Funday!!! Don’t forget to bring your climbing gear!! There’s a good chance that Psyche Slab will be dry and climbable!!!
For any info on details how to get there, etc. feel free to contact Christie Dionne: firstname.lastname@example.org
Is there some good cragging or bouldering in the Eldred or near Powell river that dries quicker than the walls this time of year sac? I don't think I can make those dates but would like to visit there sometime or next time something like this is happening.
There is alot of oceanside bouldering on good clean granite. As well as some shorter trad routes.
Most of the established freeclimbs in the Eldred dry pretty quick.
As for sport.... there is a crag (Higgyland) right in P.R. on the lake with lots of bolted lines of varying grade/quality.
Anyway, this site spells it out pretty good:
