Description

Bath Rock is an excellent area for beginners and even non-climbers. Thanks to the rangers for allowing rebar steps to be added to the west side. (Insert derogatory remark about rangers conservation vision here!!) The approach is none, and all faces have climbs. Difficulties range from 5.4 to 5.12a, with the majority on the easy end. A lot of sport routes also exist.

Due to the size of Bath Rock, areas have been broken up into four significant and isolated walls.

Getting There

Park at the area for campsites or in the large, accommodating lot by the bathrooms.

I'm pretty sure the rebar steps predated the City's establishment as a National Reserve... Dec 7, 2006

Ditto that. They're not even sure when or who might have placed the rebar on Bath Rock. Might even pre-date most climbing in the area (ie, pre Alpenbock or Steinfell folks).

My guess is it's most likely a local effort done in conjuction with one of the old promotional events way back in the '30s to '50s or so. Whoever did it, actually did a nice job. For a climber, though, that down climb is pretty reasonable, although, would be spooky as an onsight downclimb. Dec 8, 2006

 
It's kinda good to have them there, I think. A lot of folks take the kids up there, so it helps them. Feb 18, 2009

My friend and I climbed Loch ness Monster on the east side of Bath rock the morning of Saturday 6/15/13. To make a long story short, we accidentally left a #2 (yellow) BD camalot on the small ledge right below the first bolt. This camalot was not clipped to the rope so upon completing the climb I forgot to clean it. I realized about two hours later that the cam was missing and ran back to bath rock and soloed up to the ledge to find the camalot missing.
If you found this yellow camalot and are in the need of some extra karma points please pm me. I'd really appreciate it. Jun 18, 2013
FYI the rebar was put there by my great-uncle around 35 years ago. I remember climbing Bathtub Rock before he put the handles in.

Also, another point of history. My uncle was born & raised in Almo. When you leave The Rocks and towards Almo, you will see an old wood two-story cabin in a field on your right. That is where he, my grandma, and their other nine siblings were all raised. Jul 31, 2018
