ACCESS ALERT: CASBC has been notified that the climbing at Quarry Rock is on private property owned by the Deep Cove Marina. Until this access issue is resolved, climbing at The Marina and Pirate's Landing will be considered trespassing. Please do not disregard the land owners request to NOT trespass. It will only make this sensitive issue harder to potentially resolve in future negotiations.
CASBC Directors are hoping things will cool down after the release of the Vancouver Climbing guidebook so that potentially, in the future, we can revisit negotiations with the land owner to allow climbing. All private land owners in BC are protected from liability of unauthorized activity on their land by the Occupiers Liability Act but, it is a matter of convincing land owners that this is the case in a court of law.
For now, we need climbers to respect the closure at Deep Cove. In the Vancouver Climbing guidebook there are several routes listed on Quarry Rock that do not trespass on the Marina Lands and these routes are considered open for climbing.
Have fun and be safe.
Brent Nixon, CASBC Vancouver Director
