Description

The best place at Arrow Lake to come test your mettle; the Washout Boulders offer an abundance of problems that will leave your arms pumped for days to come. There seems to be a little something here for everyone’s particular style, not to mention all the awe inspiring lines you will come across: if you climb V4 and above you got to come check it out, I can’t guarantee you wont leave with a big smile on your face :) Amazingly all of the problems start seated (some really low) and feature lots of moves for their height, adding another fun aspect to this zone! Have fun!

Getting There

Coming from Nelson, as you pass the Brilliant Dam (on your left) you take the first exit on your right towards Robson following the big blue provincial parks signs for ‘Syringa Creek Provincial Park’. If you cross a bridge over the Kootenay River and hit the Castlegar Airport you have gone too far. From here follow this road down a few kilometers until you see more signs pointing to Robson and ‘Syringa Provincial Park’. Take a right here and set your odometer to “0”, this is Broadwater Rd. You will then pass a huge cliff on your right called ‘Lion’s Head’ & it’s namesake pub (highly recommended) to which tells you you’re going the right way. Now follow this road past the Dam for a total of 12.6kms to a nice pullout on your left that is directly across from the washed out creek. Hike across the road and follow the trail up the bank, once you enter the forest you will run into the Cable Boulder, the rest of the climbing is just up the nice trail less than a minute away. To get to the Plank Boulder, scramble down to the shore and follow the water back towards town 50m’s to the boulder.
