Description:

Eldred valley lies in a 20km watershed near Powell River and is surrounded by some very climbable big granite walls :D>

The area is very much off the beaten path and I'm keen to explore it!

There is a great option to do some trad and sport multipitches.

I'm thinking to drive up on the 4th (~6hrs from Vancouver) and hike in, find a good camping spot (maybe near the CAD camp?), and spend the next 3 days flailing about on the granite slabs. There's a ton to explore in this area, including some beautiful hikes.

While there are some 'easier' routes (5.6) here, due to the nature of the trip (trad climbing in remote wilderness area) trad experience is a must. Don't have to be an expert, but knowing how to place gear properly, make anchors, rappel, and lead belay etc. required.
