Description of the Project: The North Walls are home to some of the great climbs of Squamish, including Alaska Highway/The Calling, Astrologger, New Life, Gone Surfing, and many others. The trail, which begins near the base of Angel's Crest, is in need of some maintenance. The goal of this Adopt-a-Crag is to both improve access to existing climbs and to encourage route development in this vastly untapped but high-potential area.

Asrologger and Alaska Highway
I think we're going to see the North Walls continue to grow in popularity so it's nice to get this trail work done.
Does anybody have any photos of the new moderate climb going in?
What is the approach time for these climbs?

A good time was had by all - thanks to the organizers!
Here's a photo from Angel's Crest. Alaska Highway goes through the horizontal roof in the foreground. Just about all of the rock in the background is untapped. The new 5.8 goes up it.
Beyond that low angle area is another steep area. As far as I know, there are no existing routes in this area... or if any existed, they are grown over. This photo was taken mid-winter, with ice around.
