A beautiful spot over-looking Kamloops Lake, this crag has many sport routes and several trad routes too. Ranging from easy to hard, this is a perfect spot to climb on a sunny or cloudy day. Although there is a hundred metre drop about 10 metres from the crag wall, it's safe, easy to get to, and great climbing.
Easily accessible by Hwy 1/BC 97 West of Kamloops about 35 km. Park on the north side of the road in the public rest area and walk about 10 minutes up the clearly marked trail.

This is area is known as "The Beach" to the locals. While no where near any beach (at least I couldn't see one) it is located in a beautiful location.
When we visited in 2011 a number of the climbs could do with some bolt maintenance, but in general things are well bolted and the easy access makes this a good spot for a quick visit.
Another benefit in the summer months is the lack of mosquitos, something that cannot be said for the other local climbing venues.
There is really good local info here www.climbkamloops.ca/
Also the local climbing gym is a good place to get the most up to date info.
