Spillimacheen Rock Climbing
Spillimacheen Trading Post
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.
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
Weather station 10.9 miles from here
