Description 

Spillimacheen is located on a south facing hillside on the west side of the Columbia valley a few short miles along a dirt road from the small hamlet of Spillimacheen.

The climbing is found on two distinct cliff faces each with a very distinct character. The larger of the two, Hueco Wall (named after the distinctive hueco features found on the wall), has more traditional climbs some of which are 2 pitches long. The shorter more compact cliff, Nathan's Wall, has a number of fingery climbs on good rock, but with very sharp compact holds.

Getting There 

Turn of the main highway 95 just south of the Spillimacheen Trading Post. Follow the road over a level crossing and a bridge until a fork at 1.5 miles. Take the left fork, passing the hydro electric station on the left. When possible take a sharp left hairpin and climb up the slope.

After 4.5 miles from the highway you'll see the cliffs. First is Hueco Wall, and another 1/2 mile down the track you'll see the parking lot for Nathan's Wall.

Start below a very small overlap. Climb up to the overlap and pass it with a long reach and poor feet.You'll know you have the climb in the back when the large flake hold is reached. From the flake climb up with little drama to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
