Mention it to bigwalldirtbag, he's been at it to get in there and doesn't mind dirty mossy climbs. Clean rock and easy aproaches & decents make him queasy... :lol:

is that like compared to the bluffs :D

Alpine climbers hit this stuff all the time, LOE is fine its a great route and you should be able to hit Solar System as well.

Tiggers is probably fine I was up last year and climbed around on some of the lower routes and if Mercy street is dry then it should be dry as well.

bring your bike and go get it, these routes are moderate day trips.

The road is closed right now, but it just makes for a longer approach. The route still sees a low level of fairly regular traffic. I climbed it a couple years ago and it was still pretty clean.

I have been up the road and across the rope bridge recently (last 2 weeks) and the rope bridge is fine. There is still snow at the base and the top of the wall, so its not climbable there yet. This year it probably won't dry out til August. If you can still see snow anywhere on the ridge above the Kitten wall, it won't be good climbing.

The road is gated just off the Mamquam, and adds about 5 km to the approach. You can still get up the road on a bicycle, dirt bike, quad, or horse.

Good luck, stay safe.

Thank you everyone for all your help. This is a great website to get information. I love how it all works.

Hike to base of wall is 45 minutes of trail hiking above the Stawamus River, PLUS 5 km / 300 m elevation gain hiking along the Stawamus / Indian road. I would put the hike at 1.5 hours with a few breaks to gawk at the scenery.
