Description

The East Face is a combination of the Ready to Strike, Viper, and Nutcraft Walls in Howie Richardson's guidebook. Ready to Strike Wall in particular is home to a few Skaha classics, including Sidewinder (5.10c), Cytotoxic (5.11a), and Ready to Strike (5.10a trad).

This crag is popular on busy days. It's sunny in the morning and shady in the afternoon.

Getting There

Take the trail just below the upper parking lot. After 5-10 minutes, you'll pass Daycare and Daycare Quickies with their short, easy climbs. Shortly after passing these crags, you'll see a path going off to the right with a sign for Diamondback. Follow that path up the hill for a couple minutes and you're there. The first routes you come to are on the South Face. Follow the rock around the corner to reach the East Face routes.
