Please obey posted climbing route closures on the Chief during the critical nesting season for peregrine falcons.
BC Parks and a volunteer group of climbers have developed a strategy to manage rock climbing in Stawamus Chief, Shannon Falls, and Murrin Parks. The strategy will be used to direct management activities related to rock climbing in these three parks. This strategy is site specific and will not be applicable to many other provincial parks. To learn more, download the Stawamus Chief, Shannon Falls, and Murrin rock-climbing strategy [PDF]
A best-practices guide has also been developed, which recommends new guidelines and considerations for rock-climbing route cleaning, including route development. This guide intends to balance climbers’ needs with public safety and environmental considerations.

Parks along the Sea to Sky corridor have experienced exceptional growth in visitor numbers, leading to parking congestion and illegally parked vehicles.
Public safety is paramount for BC Parks, so we have implemented a parking enforcement policy at Stawamus Chief and Murrin Parks to ensure safe access for all.
Park in designated parking lots only and look out for places where ‘no parking‘ signs are posted. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed.
- Camping is allowed on designated sites only. Your tent and all of your equipment must be within your designated site.
- Generator use is only allowed from 9am to 11am and 6pm to 8pm. For more information, see the responsible recreation page.
