Rainy River Boulders (upper)

58 Boulder Problems

Description:

High quality granite scree and glacial erratics many with nice landings in a wilderness setting that are accessed by a very tame forest service road that is currently a bit mangled due to fresh logging. However road is still 2wd access with adequate clearance. Boulders are near the town of Gibsons BC. the home of Persephone Brewery and many great eateries.

Directions / Travel Info:

Push trip meter at bridge crossing of the rainy river by howe sound pulp mill then immediately after bridge turn left onto the public Rainy River forest service road and follow this for 10km to boulders. An alpine lake exists a few kilometres beyond boulders (vehicles with less ground clearance than a Mazda CX-5 may have issue with bumper drag in one spot near top and has a tiny crossditch) if so then park at 9.5km and walk gently rising road for the remainder.
Road is accessed through howe sound pulp mill property so you must check through gate.
The gate does not allow access in after dark.
Please be extra careful as there is spotty cell reception (you may get signal up at slithering Bog) also not too many passers by, you can however tell security at gate when you’ll be coming out for safety.
Lots of room for development but
Please do not cut trees, keep dogs leashed unless they are trained well enough to not harass wildlife, do not dig out landings and please be sure to modify environment in the absolute lowest impact way possible, obviously please do not litter, stay on trails to protect tree roots and undergrowth and be extremely careful with fire.
It’s a good idea to carry bear spray and be “wildlife smart” in the backcountry.
Drive slowly and be ready to pull over quickly for logging trucks!
