BC Parks has ruled out any expansion of mountain biking in the park - it's in the draft master plan. But you can go to their website and express your views about it if you want - http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/planning/mgmtplns/garibaldi/garibaldi_mp.html

The height of the wall is about 700 metres (2300 feet). It's higher than the Chief.

I don't know for sure how good the cracks are, but from what I can remember, I think they should be reasonably clean. Rock is excellent.

Glenn-how about the crystalline size? looks like there could be some good face climbing if there is stuff to pinch and smear for a good chunk of the height of that wall in the foreground.
MH -rest assured I have done so but thanks for the encouragment.

Bruce's photo is from the Spearhead Range. Even better, without gondolas and such.


Pretty loose description there Anders.....

Reilly wants coastal porn. Hmmm....

Here's a good start:



And with that out of the way, how about:



Or:



(And yes, I know, I've posted these before. But that was in a story about underwear and disease, and I think maybe they belong here, too.)

Here's one. 1000m +

J.C. himself strolled past this in the early nineties.

He promptly alerted the rock climbers w/ photos and everything.

"Red alert" is what I believe he said.

At last Tricouni posts up something promising - that is a pretty nice looking wall. Pretty low elevation however. Greg is right to be skeptical. It looks a lot like Stienbok and we all know how the crack systems go on that thing. As Brad White put it: "Its thicker than a Nuns pelt up here!"

Well, I'll just point out that Squamish is at a pretty low elevation, too, a lot lower than Steinbok.

I think there's some big granite on the north side of Toba inlet. I'd have to go digging through the archives, but I remember some shots JC took up there that showed a lot of rock.

Actually, maybe it's the NW face of Bell, now that I look at it again?

Glenn, I'm not saying it can't happen, just that its way more likely to find moss and cedars and the lower you get the more likely you find them. Stienbok and Rexford are good examples of how high that shrubbery can go.

Bruce, I hear you. I think that wall will be shrubby, particularly seeing as it's in the Prince Rupert region (rainfall and drizzle capital of BC).

Hey Glenn is that snowy pic Ambition or that general area?

No, but it has enough snow. It's actually Mt Bell, NW Waddington area, from the NE. The north ridge is on the left; the west "ridge" (Culbert-Ellis) is on the right.

John Howe/Blake Robinson appreciation going on here, especially between Ghost's pic of the Stinging Needle and then this thing:
