Sumas Mountain

8 Sport Climbs, 2 Trad Climbs


Small roadside crag about half way up Sumas Mountain. There are 9 climbing routes found on the main wall: 2 trad and 7 sport ranging from 5.6-5.11a. 10 draws and a 60m rope will get you up and down everything. This wall is in the shade for most of the day due to forest cover. This is a great spot to go to avoid the heat of the sun, however it does take a little while to dry after a rain event. A single rack for the trad routes is adequate. This is the go-to beginner crag in the Fraser Valley as it is very easy to set up top rope anchors. Solid rock with good holds plus moderate grades ensures this is a great place to learn! A lot of anchors are just hangers, and are back from the edge so a couple of slings are nice for top ropes. There are rap stations at each wall, however walk-offs are quick and easy.

'From Abbotsford, drive east along McKee Road, past Ledgeview Golf Course all the way to the end of McKee. Take a left (north) onto Sumas Mountain Road. You will drive straight through a 4-way stop (Dawson Road). The road will start heading up a hill, after it levels off there will be a rock quarry on the right. The road will dip and there will be a pull-out on either side of the road, park here. Walk along the trail heading west until you see a crag, staying left at the fork in the trail. If you head right you will arrive at the top rope cliff. The main cliff is just 100m left of this cliff along a trail. If while driving you pass Foxglove Lane on your left, you have driven a few hundred meters too far.'
