About

Cyberia is quickly becoming one of the favorite places to boulder for Victoria climbers. It offers a large number of boulders quite close to town and has a beautiful lake a short five minute walk from the boulders to take a dip in after a hot summers day session. The best place to chill out on the lake is a top a small slopey face. The water here is deep enough to jump into (if you just far enough), and there is a fun problem going up the face. Jack just got the FA the other day. The problem starts just out of the water beside the path and then goes up to the right. Have it go, but beware, you're going to have a push off the rock if you feel yourself slipping if you don't want a face that look like it went through a cheese grater.

Directions

Step 1. Getting to the Hartland landfill


When leaving Victoria head toward the ferries. Before you head up the last hill out of town there is the Royal Oak exit. Take this exit and then turn left and cross the bridge over the highway. After crossing the bridge you will hit your first set of lights. Go straight through this intersection and then take a right at the next lights. The road you will be turning onto will be West Saanich road. Follow this road for quite a while until you seen Hartland road on your left. Turn onto this road and follow it until just before you head into the dump. There is a big parking lot at to the right off the road. Pull in there and park.


Step 2. Getting to the boulders


One parked, follow the mountain bike trail to the left of the road. You will follow the fence for a while and then pass the skills area. Next you will head downward and cross a creek and then climb a small hill. At the top of the hill you'll want to take a left onto one of the bike trails. Follow this trail for about 7 minutes until you hit one of the small clearings. There should be a big piece of scrap metal beside the start of the trail. Take this trail down the hill. This trail will join up with another trail. When this happens, go right. Follow this trail for about 10 minutes along the lake. After passing the lake you should start to see the start of the bouldering area off to your left. Keep heading down the trail, always keeping to the left. After crossing a couple logs the trails will take a sharp turn to the left and you should end up a the overhang wall.

    I noticed there was no beta on this site so i started making my own mini-guide. I've only been there for a day so don't be too harsh with your criticism. Also, I want to apologize in advance for the crappy topo. Well, here's version 1 the (very) rough draft, if you have any info email me at rock_climbr@hotmail.com The link: http://cid-3163f33ef6be70ef.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/boulder%20vic

    Started to add more beta to this area. I'm going to try to work through areas one by one and this will be the first. Perhaps Duncan boulders after this.
