Anders,
Colin, and Marc Albert climbed Mt. Denman a few yrs. ago.
They paddled 30+km. from Lund to Forbes Bay, and camped @ beach there.
I believe asking permission of Klahoose First Ntn. to camp there is a good idea.
They summited via SE Ridge, the route sounded good, w/ some exposed easy 5'th rock terrain to summit. 2 days , beach to beach.
I believe some route finding up the valley bush was the crux.
Anyway, I could put you, or anyone in touch w/ Marc for more info.
cheers.

Very sorry I didn't make it this year Andy & crew. I might see you up there in a couple months, though!

Thanks, guys. I passed the information about Denman on to my friend. He has a cottage on Savary, and has dreamed about getting up Denman. Middle aged, not very fit, but perhaps.

It would be great for someone to do Call of the Granite all free. I'm glad to hear someone at least trying for it. My friends and I are the ones who made that No Permanent Address film that featured the FA of it. While I wasn't a part of the Eldred Valley part of the production, it sure does look like a worthy FFA prize from watching the video.

Paging Will, Sonnie, .... someone go free it!

Been awhile since an Eldred update...
Alas, lots of activity up there last year. Several new routes being worked on, on some new walls. Mostly freeclimbing. Really good stuff.

Anyway, an annual invite to anyone who is keen to come check this area out, this would be a good opportunity.

I'll copy Christie's invite, and hope to see some new faces this year.

Bump Again!

Thanks Sac for the update. I have always wanted to make it over to do some climbing and exploring, so I see no better time than this year. My friend has been spending some time in PR recently, and she attended the jamboree last year, sounds like it is a great time, with a bunch of great people!
Anyone else planning on making the trip over?

I just found this forum and thread, and am pretty stoked to hear people getting stoked about the valley. I run a blog about climbing in Powell River (There's good climbing in town too, not just the valley) and the Eldred. It's still new, but for those of you interested in the area hopefully it can shed some light on things as a whole. I'm going to try and cover the bases of what's already been done in the area, and try to keep up to date on new development as well. Next week I'll be doing an interview with Matt Madaloni about his and John's first ascent of Carag Dur.
Like I said though, I just started the blog so there isn't a lot of content yet, but I'll be doing what I can to keep it going. Check it out if you're interested in the climbing scene in PR - www.prclimbing.blogspot.com
There's so much to cover, so far I've been updating it every week. I started by just making posts based on random pictures I had, and things I found scattered on line...starting with the last post, expect a series of posts focusing on each wall in the valley.
Cheers and happy climbing!
