Description Suggest change

Doctors' Group is mostly for folks who climb 5.10+ or higher, with the notable exception of the Fern Gully area. The crag after which the group is named - Doctors' Wall - is perhaps the biggest destination at Skaha, with imposing and classic lines throughout.

Between all the crags in the group, you should be able to find shade at any time of the day except perhaps high noon. Tsunami and Doctors' Walls even allow for wet weather climbing most days.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the main trail from the lower parking lot, pass The Fortress and Red Tail, hit the crossroads with the outhouse, and then follow the sign straight through to Doctors' Group.
