Sully's Hangout

Climbs 28 – Rocktype UNKNOWN – Altitude 341m a.s.l – Faces ?

Crag features
Hidden beneath the cool, shady fir trees on the slopes of Lynn

Peak in North Vancouver is a unique rock cliff. An amazing discovery,

this crag is easily the largest and steepest rock outcropping that is

convenient to access on the entire North Shore. A variety of interesting

rock features give a complex character to the cliff, while the forest

provides a peaceful natural setting.

Rumour has it the crag was stumbled-upon by a young couple

looking to find some “privacy” while out hiking one day. Recently

developed into a sport climbing area, Sully’s Hangout has quickly become a

local favourite and is very busy in the summer. At first glance, the routes

look moderate and straightforward, but the climbing proves challenging.

Difficult cruxy sequences requiring strong technical style are typical of

Sully’s. In fact, the climbing is on average in the 5.11 grade range, but a

number of quality moderates are great for warm-ups and beginners too.

Approach notes

Access notes
Sully’s Hangout is located on the steep west side of Lynn Peak’s

long southern shoulder, within the boundaries of the LSCR, or Lower

Seymour Conservation Reserve (formerly known as the “Demonstration

Forest”). Although access is available through the Lynn Headwaters

Regional Park, the most reliable access point is the LSCR. From highway

#1 northbound take exit 22a and follow Lillooet Road north past Capilano

College all the way to the main LSCR parking lot.

Then take the Lynn Headwaters Connector Trail north, passing

the Rice Lake area, until you reach the Lynn Loop Trail turnoff on the

right. Follow the Lynn Loop Trail steeply upwards. Just a few steps before

you reach the junction with the Lynn Peak trail, look for a small cairn on

the right. Step over and find a small track leading up the slope. Follow it

and shortly the crag will loom above you...
