    Mile 38 Road UPDATE.
    Active logging is taking places at Km-22 and Logging trucks will be hauling from 22 to the highway 17.
    Be sure to stay on the right side of the road. Obtain a radio from us for the day ($20.00) rental if you want to be SAFE.
    The loggers want to know where you are along the Road. Radios can be rented in the SOO at Radio Telegraph stores.
    There are 2 main climbing areas and these have "ICE" painted on trees as well as parking spots.ll
    KM-14 on the right side. There is access here to 20 Climbs. Trails are flagged to the TALK ABOUT GOOD WALL. It faces the powerline.
    Other climbs are accessible by following the creek trail, up into the bowl. Climbs are on left side.
    KM-17 on the left side. There is an access trail on the right side of the road. There are 6 climbs here.
