A collection of routes, many of which are on the obvious and impressive west-facing cliff. Shady in the mornings.

Getting There 

Take the path just below the upper parking lot past Daycare and Diamondback. When you hit Elusive Edge, take the right path towards Grassy Glades. After hiking up some switchbacks and levelling off, veer left toward the talus field before hitting Grassy Glades. The prominent wall is hard to miss.

One of the all-time great climbs at Skaha. A must-do. This route follows a seam, crack, and series of features straight up through the gently overhanging wall, to a small alcove beneath a roof. Pull the roof, and you've only got to hang on for a few more meters to the chains.This route has been lead on gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Park in the upper lot and follow the signs. Do not park in the lower lot and walk past the Fortress or you will be doing a lot of extra walking!
