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.

GPS Coordinates
Turn/Park: N49 58.480 W123 18.313
Crag: N49 59.378 W123 18.799

Directions / Parking / Approach:
Turn left off Hwy99 at the Alice Lake turnoff just North of Squamish. If you reset your odometer to 0 it is exactly 31.5km to the base of the cliff. After the bridge follow the left fork (Squamish Valley Rd.) Follow this until the road turns to gravel. Continue on Squamish main until you get to mile 25. At this point start looking for the turnoff. It is at mile 25 ¾ (Chuck Chuck creek) on the right. There is a sign at the creek. If you go over the creek you went 50ft too far. An SUV would be better, but any 4wd car should make it as long as you go slowly over some of the waterbars. I can do it in my 4wd Corolla wagon if I'm not to loaded down. If you don't want to take your car you can park here, it’s about a 20 minute walk on an easy road. At this point you may want to put it in 4wd to avoid spinning out. Follow the steep logging road up, passing two large boulders in the road. You will come to a recent slash burn area. Turning right continues to the "Clint Eastwood Crag". Go straight and you will come to "Chuck Chuck Creek Crag" after crossing the creek.

Sun Shine / Shade:
East facing so more sun in the AM**

Route Information:
Chuck Chuck Creek crag is a small crag about 35 minutes North of Squamish. So far there are 11 established routes ranging from 10a to 12b. All routes are bolted sport climbs except for "Fly in the Ointment" the lone crack. Routes are 15 to 20m in length. The climbing is mainly vertical to overhanging with tendon friendly juggy holds. The rock dries incredibly fast after light rains but prolonged periods of rain will cause a few seeps. The Cliff faces east.

The inner sanctum doesn't seem to be described in the topo, but I scraped this out of the forums some time ago:


Inner Sanctum

Same directions as for Chuck Chuck. Park in the same spot. 50m south of Chuck Chuck on the right side of the road is a trail that follows the creek. Theres a sign. Might take about 1 minute. Wear a sturdy pair of flip flops. You can see this crag on the left as you approach Chuck Chuck.

It's a small crag with 5 routes and possibly a couple more in the near future. It faces the same direction as Chuck Chuck so recieves early sun and afternoon shade. It is next to the creek and therefore quite cool.

The climbing starts off really steep and juggy easing off at the top. Shorter than Chuck Chuck but full value nonetheless.

Routes are from right to left:

1. Grasping Infinity 5.10b/c? 5 bolts + chains

Follow the steep jugs and flakes to the small roof. Pull the roof to finish at a set of chains.

2. Bubba Ho-Tep 5.11a? 5 bolts + ring anchor.

3. Slash and Burn 5.10d? 5 bolts + ring anchor

4. Stop, Drop and Roll 5.11a/b? 5 bolts + chains

5. Limestone Dreams 5.11b/c? 5 bolt + ring anchor. Harder than it looks. This one might actually be easier if you're short?
