SLOCAN BLUFFS
When climbing in the Valhallas, the Slocan Bluffs should not be missed. The fracture pattern found throughout these granitic cliffs dips eastward. So these west facing bluffs feature an unusual abundance of incut holds.

Getting There


These lakeside sport climbs require one of the shortest approaches in British Columbia. The local guidebook states: "It's probably one of the only areas in British Columbia that's wheelchair accessible."

The crags are located at the town of Slocan, British Columbia; on the east side of Slocan Lake. Not really in the Valhallas but easily visited on trips to the Valhallas. The Bluffs are less than a mile from either the town's campground or swimming beach. Park on the east side of Slocan's defunct lumber mill and walk in along the old paved road. 80 routes are listed in the West Kootenay Rock Guide (Hempsall & Kritiansen @ climbing.inthekoots.com).
