Participant Information

*This trip is dependent on good/dry weather*

The plan is to leave Friday after work, before 5 and drive to Penticton.

Climb Saturday, Sunday, and 1/2 day Monday before returning.

As it will be quite hot, we will likely spend a day (or part of) at the lake. 

This isn't a course , however beginners with outdoor experience are welcome.

I will also be approving participants based on having a balanced ratio of experienced to new climbers and to ensure we have enough ropes/gear. 

Skaha bluffs are amazing and offer hundreds of climbs. Most are well bolted sport, but there are many mixed and trad climbs at almost all levels of difficulty.

We will likely be camping at Banbury Green RV and Camping Resort. Cost will be about $15/person/night. Still need to make a reservation... 


Participants will require a minimum of the basic climbing gear (harness, belay device, pas, helmet and 2 locking carabiners). If you have a climbing rope in good condition, I recommend you bring it.
