Description

This collection of crags can be very popular, due to its proximity to the parking lot and its assortment of easy and moderate climbs. Some of the best moderate climbs in the Park are here; if you're looking for moderate Skaha classics, check out anything on the Ready to Strike Wall of Diamondback, the 5.11s/5.12s at The Wave, or The Raven and the Bear (5.9+) at Raven's Castle.

Getting There

The easiest access for the Southern Crags is from the trail just below the upper parking lot. Follow that and you'll go right by Daycare and Daycare Quickies, after which you pass Diamondback and Elusive Edge. You can also access the Southern Crags from Red Tail by taking the path out of that canyon past the Wave.
