About

These crags are scattered throughout the woods and are all within a 15 minute walk from the Comox Lake campground. The majority of the routes are 5.10 or easier, making them suitable for most climbers. An increasing number of harder routes are being set for advanced climbers.

The first routes were put up in the mid eighties, though the majority of climbs have been established more recently. The routes have been established by just a few dedicated climbers and many of the difficult routes have not been repeated.

There is a guidebook for this area that you can purchase the was created by John Waters. It's called Comox Valley Climbs and can be purchased as MEC and probably some other outdoors stores in the area.

Directions

Comox Lake Crags are found around the campground west of Cumberland at Comox Lake. The campground at the lake is called Cumberland Lake Park. Cumberland is approximately a 1 hour drive north of Nanaimo, and a 2.5 hour drive north of Victoria on the inland island Highway #19. Take Exit 117 to Cumberland and drive 3 km to Dunsmuir Avenue. Turn right and drive 4 blocks up this main avenue, at the end turn left and drive 4.4 km to Comox Lake and the campground. There are signs to Comox Lake from the Highway.

    Curtis and I put up a new route on the crag that we used to call the crag twin towers above Cathedral Rock (complex thoughts area). 10 min walk. Carman route is close by to the right of the buttress past "choss wall" . Our route is about 40m, 10a, 15 bolts + a few small to med cams. starts on a blocky mantle then follows a left slanting flake to an optional belay. climb ramp right then up vertical edgy funess to above the trees. good views, very good route ***.
