Ariel leading Bottom Line.


A classic skaha climb. Fully sustained climbing at 5.11a. Great, vertical, technical, and pumpy.


Finishes under a small roof feature high up on the main wall.


13 bolts.

This is a great sport climb! It's the best 5.11a I've done.

There are 13 bolts now.

Was told by many that this was the best 5.11a in Skaha- it did not disappoint!

This is a seriously incredible route. No single move is above 10c in difficulty, but it's relentless and seems to go on forever. Most of the harder moves are before the 5th or 6th bolt, during that first slightly overhung section. After that there's an easier traverse left, followed by nothing but pump. Note that the guidebook is wrong in the number of bolts; there are 13 now, as Adrian mentioned.
