Smoke Bluffs Park

SMOKE BLUFFS PARK

 

The Smoke Bluffs close proximity to downtown Squamish and residential property, complex mix of public and private land ownership coupled with great popularity amongst visiting climbers, have long made it one of the area’s toughest access challenges. SAS , and its predecessor organisation, the Squamish Rock Climbers Association, have been working with the various interest groups for more than two decades. The key development was the formal recognition of the area as a municipal park with an explicit climbing objective in 2006. SAS has supplied the chair for the Smoke Bluffs Park advisory committee for most of the period since then.
