Holmes Rock

Holmes Rock is located off Uplands under the transmission towers. The rock is a 27m overhanging flat faced boulder with two bolted routes, reasonably good trail to the large flat platform top. [trees and anchors on top]

directions: Leave the Nanaimo Parkway at Mostar Rd. Go east until you cross the old Island Highway and the road turns into Rutherford Road. Continue up the hill, through the lights on Uplands and take the first right onto Brookwood. Go to the end of Brockwood and park.

what could it be if not a pumping station
Hike the path to the left of the pumping station, along the bottom of the ridge till you hit a 5 way corner. Work the paths up the slope and back the way you just came. A 5 minute walk from your car at most.

A friend's son re-introduced me to this spot. I told him I used to take him here when he was 5 and I was always panicked about him falling, and here he was walking off the edge at age 20. I found Holmes Rock when I lived on the adjacent property in the early 80s.
