About Giscome:

The Giscome climbing area consists of four small cliffs spread around Eaglet Lake. This is not a destination area, let me assure you, and it would have been a desperate, starved-for-rock soul that unearthed these gems initially. That being said, however, Giscome remains the crag of choice of a decidedly bad lot; Evening Rock cannot hold a candle to Giscome in any respect. Most, if not all, of the cliffs are short and slabby. I've not visited this area for a number of years, so forgive me if my account is less than 100% accurate. Although it is a little out of the way, Fort St. James has endless potential, and the rock (limestone) quality ranges from good to excellent. If you intend to spend any amount of time in the north, then I would recommend that you concentrate your attention on Ft. St. James if you hope to get any good climbing accomplished.
