The Longhouse Squamish Rock Climbing Crag

The Longhouse is a phenomenal new crag developed by Charlie Long. The crag is characterized by long, pumpy, burly splitter cracks and corners. The rock is extremely bomber and almost every line is incredibly aesthetic. This is definitely one of the best crags in Squamish if you like steep, burly crack climbing. WARNING: THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT THE SMOKE BLUFFS.

Grades are more in line with the Valley than the rest of Squamish too.

Approach: Turn onto Mamquam Road next to the Apron parking lot. Continue for about 3.5 km until you see a chlorine shack on your right. The road forks here; go right. Go another couple kilometers until you see an obvious (only) right branch; this is the road leading to Habrich and the upper gondola. Follow this road until you see the 8km marker. Park on the right just before the 8km marker, and a trail with orange markers leads rightward downhill (westward). Follow the trail down and south/south-westerly, crossing a stream and seeing an old tree-built shelter, eventually coming to the crag in about 15 minutes from the parking area.

Route beta and topos/pics coming shortly …
