The blocks are well spaced in a pleasant pine forest, and the floor tends to be flat, even sandy at times. The rock is granite, but has a sandstone-like feel due to its gritty, fine grain. The ever present granite sloper still dominates the landscape, but fans of tiny holds will rejoice at the plethora of thin edges. The summer conditions tend to be warmer and drier than squamish, but winter brings lots of snow - spring and fall offer the best conditions.
To locate the parking area for the Green River Bastion, drive either 4km south of Pemberton or 28.5km north of Highway 99-Whistler Village intersection. The railroad tracks cross the highway just north of the parking area and the massive Green River Bastion cliff is clearly visible to the west. Some climbers have made the mistake of stopping farther south at a similar looking pullout on Highway 99, so please check your landmarks carefully. ACCESS ALERT: The various bouldering areas are scattered on either side of the tracks, some quite close to the highway. Please minimise your presence on the tracks as the rail company has concerns about recreational activities close to the trains. Use the trails whenever possible as any conflicts could potentially create future access closures.
