|The Skaha Bluffs have many excellent sport and
trad rock climbing routes. There should be
good opportunities for both leading and top-
roping, depending on skill levels. Expect full
days of climbing on Friday and Saturday. We
will also get in as much climbing as possible
on Sunday before departing home.
I've booked tent sites for 8 climbers at
Banbury Green Campground in Penticton. The plan
is to leave work a bit early on Thursday, drive
up and camp. The remaining days we will climb
as much as possible.
All participants must bring their personal
climbing gear, including harness, belay device,
locking biner, climbing shoes, and helmet. I've
not asked the club for any ropes so bring your
ropes and quick draws if you have them. Also
note... while the more experienced climbers are
usually happy to share their knowledge, this is
not a climbing course.
All participants must be able to safely belay
and have some experience leading. Everyone
will be encouraged to lead.
We'll plan to meet at 4:00pm at the Chevron on
Boundary Road just south of Grandview Hwy on
Thursday, April 13th. We'll aim to arrive back
in Vancouver on Sunday evening. |
