Stone Hills - NW of bridge Rock Climbing
Routes in Stone Hills - NW of bridge
|Flame S 5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b|
DescriptionGenerally east facing cliffs facing the lake - historically, there were extremely few people who ever climbed there other than yours truly (back in 80's and 90's).
Rock is quartzite - like the rest of the Stone Hills formation.
A variety of face climbing features, with vertical and horizontal cracks... lots of loose flakes and much lichen on areas that haven't been cleaned and prepped from the top.
Getting ThereComing south from Eureka, head down the east side highway along the lake and turn right on the Kookanusa bridge...(from the south, from Hold Up Bluffs - turn left onto the bridge) Then turn right off the bridge and drive up the road a short way(to the top of a hill)...
Park at a pull-out... the "trail" will take you to the top of the formation. You can rap down Flame (double (55-60m) ropes, or a mid-station with two bolts for a single rope - two raps).
Or... find a trail (on right?) that will take you down to a bench below the cliffs and above the lake.
Yo... you'd be well advised to have a copy of the local guide book for specific directions.
