Description

The Fortress may be the most popular area at Skaha, and not just because of its proximity to the parking lot. Here, you'll find a huge selection of classic moderate sport routes, with many mixed and two-pitch climbs thrown in as well.

Getting There

This is the first area you see on your left as you walk on the main trail from the lower parking lot. The first rock you'll hit is part of The Ramparts; from here, head left on the upper path to go to the Dysphorium and the Plum Wall or continue onwards to reach the other sections of The Fortress.
