Description

One of the most popular areas at Skaha, both because of its proximity to the parking lot and the variety of easier routes it showcases. The Redtail Group has a handful of different areas with quality climbing, mostly sport but some trad as well.

The climbing areas here all face the sun most of the day but the walls on the lower half are protected a bit with trees. There is usually a nice breeze moving through Shady Valley all day.

Getting There

After passing The Fortress on the main trail from the lower parking lot, you can turn left up the hill to reach Lower Redtail and eventually Upper Redtail, or continue down low to reach Another Buttress. All the crags will be on your left and ar hard to miss.
