Chek Canyon

Chek Canyon

Find it on the Squamish Climbing Map (Click Here)

Topos:
Chek Area Topo (Click Here)
Topo Description:
Please note all topos are provided by and based on information from climbers and first hand observations. Please verify route lengths, bolts and descriptions on your own. SquamishClimbing.com is not responsible for the information provided on these topos.

Directions:
Drive approximately 25km North of the McDonald's in Squamish and look for the Conroy Creek Forest Service Road on the east side of the road. The entrance to the Conroy Creek service road is only legally accessible when traveling north on HWY 99. The entrance to the road is found on a bit of a dangerous corner so please obey traffic signs.

Parking:
If you have a 4x4 or a car with a bit of clearance you can drive to the topo of the road and park a lot closer to the climbs. In the spring of 2006 a new parking lot was created 2/3's of the way up the road. This new parking lot is accessible by most cars. If you're not sure you will have to park at the bottom of the hill and walk up. Please note that this is also the parking location for the Sport Temple, The Gym, and The Pleasure Dome. Please also be advised the the Forest Service Road is used by the HWY 99 construction companies. Please obey all signs and DO NOT BLOCK any part of the service road.

Approach:
If you park at the bottom of the hill then your approach will also include the 5 minute walk up the gravel road. If you made it to the top in one piece then you are probably parked right next to Conroy's Castle and the forgotten wall. Follow the road 5 minutes north to get to The Crest or follow the trail 5-10 minutes south to head to the main area.

Sun Shine / Shade:
85% of the climbing faces east which means morning sun and afternoon shade. A few walls face north or south so please refer to the map in the topo for more details
