One of a small number of excellent moderate traditional climbs at Skaha, Double Exposure climbs is by far the most popular route at the East Portal and is highly recommended.

Double Exposure

Start up a left facing corner (finger sized) then move left through an overhang (crux) to another left facing corner. Follow this to the anchors at 30m.


The East Portal is a small crag. Double Exposure is a pretty obvious line roughly in the middle of the wall.


Double Exposure takes mostly finger sized gear, though I recall placing a BD1 and a BD2. Bring lots of long slings or draws to mitigate rope drag.
