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.

Sweet thread; lots of amazing climbing photos!
Here's some photos from my camping trip up there; we ended up doing lots of hiking, but didn't do any climbing. http://kaleidoscopeflux.blogspot.ca/2013/08/eldred-valley.html

Bump.

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.


Sport climbing?

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:
