Topo Description:

Directions:
Sully's Hangout is located on the steep west side of Lynn Peak's long southern shoulder, within the boundaries of the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (a.k.a. the "Demonstration Forest"). Although access is available through the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, the most reliable access point is the LSCR. From highway #1 northbound take exit 22a and follow Lillooet Road north past Capilano College all the way to the main LSCR parking lot.


Parking:
The main LSCR parking lot. An alternative (although not recommended) option is to use the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park parking area. The roads leading to both parking areas are gated. These gates are closed in the evening at times which are clearly posted. Plan your visit around it, and don’t be late—especially on the Headwaters side. Search and Rescue is notified if vehicles are still inside the gates after the gates are shut.

Approach:
Take the Lynn Headwaters Connector Trail north, passing the Rice Lake area, until you reach the Lynn Loop Trail turnoff on the right. Follow the Lynn Loop Trail steeply upwards. Just a few steps before you reach the junction with the Lynn Peak trail, look for a small cairn on the right. Step over and find a small track leading up the slope. Follow it and shortly the crag will loom above you...

Sun Shine / Shade:
Located on a heavily forested mountainside, Sully’s does not really receive any direct, open sunlight. It isn’t dreary, but it is shady and cool—a better place than most to climb on a sweltering sunny afternoon. Also, because it faces west, Sully’s benefits in the late afternoon and early evening from about as much sunlight as can be expected (compared to, say the Senior Centre). On the other hand, because it is sheltered, Sully’s can be very slow to dry out after a rain, especially in the spring and fall.

Type Of Climbing:
Sport climbing—all bolted—at a variety of grades. There are some excellent moderates, but the crag tends to feature difficult and bold sport routes that are very challenging for the average weekend warrior. Whatever the grade, the climbing is always interesting. In places, the rock is highly featured ("North Shore Cauliflower") and varies from slabby to overhanging with fractures, cracks, and even roofs thrown in for good measure.

Access Issues:
Access is SENSITIVE. Climbing at Sully’s Hangout is not officially permitted by authorities as a recreational opportunity in the LSCR. However, at this time climbers will not be prevented by authorities from accessing the crag. Therefore, please use absolute discretion, follow the rules, climb safe, and help keep the climbing area open. Refer to the Climber’s Access Society Website for more information: http://www.access-society.ca/regions/lo ... -hangout-2 and please note the area is gated and your car will be locked in after the gate closure time!

Route: Special K, 11b/c
There's a large loose block at the very top of this route just below and left of the anchor that is ready to come out. You're a little runout at this spot, so beware and don't grab this thing. It really needs to be removed.
