About Sulley's Hangout:

Beautiful sport climbing area with a few top-rope and trad options. Sully’s Hangout is located on the steep west side of Lynn Peak’s southern shoulder, within the boundaries of the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR). At first, the routes look pretty straightforward, but the climbing is challenging. Difficult cruxy moves requiring strong technical style are typical of Sully’s. The climbing has an average 5.11 difficulty, but there are some easier routes as well. There are 22 routes and 3 ongoing projects on the three adjacent crags. (Thanks to )
Nearest town or city: West Vancouver
Directions: Access is available through the Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, but 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. 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 meters 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 to the crag.

Access Issues: Authorities representing the LSCR have decided not to permit rock climbing in the area. Nor will they be responsible for, or manage, the Sully’s Hangout climbing area which lies within its borders. However, at this time LSCR personnel will not specifically prevent persons from climbing within the LSCR. Any person who chooses to rock climb within the LSCR does so absolutely at their own risk. Keeping the Sully’s Hangout climbing area open to climbers will require that climbers obey LSCR rules at all times while present in the LSCR and that they respect without question the wishes of LSCR personnel and/or any signs posted regarding climbing in the LSCR or at the climbing area. If approached by park rangers, be friendly and polite. Stay on the trail and within the platform areas at the base of the crag. Always use “leave-no-trace” wilderness ethics. Leash your dog (or better yet leave it at home), pack out your trash, and keep the climbing area clean and tidy. This is all very important—we need to keep our impact to a minimum. Also, the area is still being developed. If there is a red tape on the first bolt, the route is a project and is off limits. Please don’t interfere with fixed ropes and gear. IMPORTANT! Note that the main gates at both major access points are CLOSED and LOCKED in the evening at clearly posted times. You MUST be out before the gates are locked or you will be shut in. Any attempt to tamper with or defeat the gates will result in a POLICE CALL. Either get out of the gated area before closing, or use an alternate, non-gated access point. Do not, for any reason whatsoever, attempt to circumvent the gate closure—you could get the crag permanently closed to climbing!
