    Film crews from "Lost in space" will be working in the Chek Canyon from Thursday May 18 through to Saturday evening May 20th. We've asked for extra flaggers to be on site and help inform climbers of temporary delays for getting to routes in the canyon. The Shoot to Kill cliff is the general area being filmed and you may have to wait a few minutes to get past this spot.

    We're grateful the film company reached out - we're hoping they leave the area in good condition when they've finished.

    • June 20, 2016: BC Parks is implementing a parking enforcement policy at Stawamus Chief and Murrin parks.
      Provincial parks along the Sea-to-Sky corridor have experienced exceptional growth in visitor numbers, leading to parking congestion and illegally parked vehicles. Public safety is paramount for BC Parks, and new parking policies are being put in place to ensure safe access for all.

      Visitors must park in designated parking lots and observe the “no parking” signs posted. Effective July 4, 2016 BC Parks will be implementing a tow-away policy for any vehicles parked illegally.

    The Squamish Access Society conducted a survey over the last month regarding the upcoming Squamish Rampage Festival on August 13th, 2016. The festival revolves around the Stawamus Chief Boulders and is starting to gather a fair amount of momentum. Squamish Access Society was looking for public opinion regarding the festival.

    Squamish Access Society recently met with organizers of the Rampage charity bouldering competition, which takes place for a third consecutive year in 2016. Reasons for the meeting included concerns about the impact of the event and the invoking of SAS’s name in Rampage’s interactions with key counter-parties like District of Squamish and BC Parks. Following the meeting it was agreed that Emilisa Frirdich, a SAS director, would join Rampage’s planning committee, and that Rampage should fund-raise purely for the Climb and Conquer charity, and not for SAS (charitable proceeds were shared previously).

    Subsequent to the meeting, SAS surveyed the membership to check attitudes to Rampage. Key results of this survey were:

    1. Members are mostly neutral-to-favourably inclined toward the event
    2. Members have numerous concerns about the event’s impact. These results support SAS decision to engage with Rampage constructively with a view to encourage changes that would reduce impacts, rather than wholly disassociate from the event.

Climbers' Access Society of British Columbia began in 1996 and is a registered charity.
