As of 17 October 2016, there are 6 routes at The Drive-In. The first route that you come to starts in up a broken wall to a left facing corner just beyond where the approach trail reaches the cliff. The routes are described from left to right:

Quiet Daze 5.8 125m

From Grant Parkin:

Quiet Daze 5.8 125m

F.A. of full route- Grant Parkin, Trevor Jones. (Sep 2016)

F.A. for P1 Colin Hoglund, Grant Parkin. (May 2016)

Sentinel, South End. Located several meters left of Ambulance Chaser, the route Quiet Daze is a fully bolt protected five pitch route on generally good rock. Named after a comment I’d made about it being a quiet day when I equipped the first pitch and later realized I must have been in a daze when my four pitch project turned out to have five rappels/pitches.

Approach: Hike up as for True Grit, Geriatric, Econoline. Start ~15m left of a lone spruce tree at the base of the wall and ~15 m right of Econoline. The first bolt has a black hanger and is ~8m above the ground

P1- 50m,5.9: Climb up on good rock with some delicate moves to a good ledge and anchor after 30m.  Either belay here or preferably ascend another 20m (5.8) to a bolted anchor on a loose ledge.  

Mt. Hector - Apollo - 5.10

An 11 pitch rock climb on the south ridge of Mt. Hector

Please do not identify the route in the media or in social media posts. The approach goes through delicate vegetation and prime wildlife habitat. Let’s keep the crowds down to avoid conflicts with Parks Canada values.
