A. Dunlop & J. McDonald
Excelelnt protection. Bring several cams from finger to hand size and a few stoppers.
One of the most radical splitter cracks in the Fraser Valley, 'Tubby and His Pal' slashes the overhanging face of a large block perched high above the road. The position is fantastic and the climbing is difficult and sustained.
Pull a small but strenuous roof with almost no feet into overhanging ring locks. The crack eventually widens to thin hands and finally hands before the steep angle eases off. Pleasant climbing up solid blocks leads to the top. Belay at a tree.
Not a good top-rope piece as the anchor is back from the edge of the cliff. Top Roping this route will be hard on the rope and the belayer due to drag.
'Tubby and His Pal' is located on a large diamond shaped block easily visible from the road where the trail turns off. Can be approached from the top of 'Bigfoot' via a short scramble or by rapping in from above. Hike the trail towards the base of the 'Falcons Crest Wall' but traverse ledges east (right) when reaching the base of the wall. Follow these ledge to the end, flex up a rope in a corner and hike approx 2 minutes up the gully above. Follow and obvious ramp out of the gully right (east) and find the top of the route where the ramp flattens out. (trail approach approx 30 minutes)
Rap from tree above route or walk off down trails to the left.
