Access to Comic Rocks

This area has now had a de facto closure affecting it for some months due to highway construction The work seems to be near completion. The original parking spot (at the entrance of the access road which led off the highway) is currently filled with gravel and the new highway base is approximately 20 feet higher than before, and bordered on the right with concrete roadside barriers. Parking is still possible several hundred meters to the south at Britannia Forest Service Road , but it is not exactly welcoming, with a bumpy entrance and pylons obstructing easy access. If you can get in, park near the yellow gate, off to the side, and walk along the highway to the old entrance site. In addition to this info, which we received from the Ministry of Transportation, we have additional information from the contractor to contact Tim Rule at 604-999-7043 for access information (call at least 24hrs before).

In the long term, a right-in and right-out access point is indicated on construction plans. Climbers coming from the north will have to travel south to Furry Creek and turn around and head back north to this access point.
