Bouldering near Eldred walls
In addition some bouldering has begun to develop along the road in the vicinity of the Eldred walls. Some exploration should reveal many boulders to the astute explorer. Also several trails lead to many alpine objectives. It should be noted that a virtually limitless supply of rock climbing opportunity lies in the granite peaks surrounding the Eldred.
Powell Riverís Eldred Valley access descriptions:
To reach the Eldred, travel via B.C. ferries to Powell River, then go to Lang Bay Approximately 15 km south of the Westveiw ferry terminal, or if landing at Saltery bay 10 km north. From Lang bay store head about 1km north to the goat lake main logging road. Follow the goat main for 34 miles (logging rd signage is in miles in P.R.) after this pleasant two- hour drive you canít miss the walls. Access to Psyche Slab is from the pullout at mp. 34 the West Main Wall trail starts at 35.5. The logging road is closed to the public from 6a.m. Until 6p.m. Monday until Friday. Generally speaking traveling when the road is active should be avoided as 100 tonne logging trucks pose a serious objective hazard. Traveling up in early morning (before 6) or down in the evening (after 6) is OK, however use extreme caution at all times on the logging road.
