Kootenay Crag Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Topo with access info. Drawn by A. Jones
The Kootenay Crag, home of one the best trad climbs, and the hardest sport climb in the West Kootenays. Routes start at 10d and go to 13b, mostly slightly overhanging sport routes, but several excellent mixed lines as well. Usually you'll have the place to yourself.
Starting at the parking lot at the top of Elwyn street (Svoboda road), bike down to the crag

: ... : Kootenay Crag
One of the classic climbs in the West Kootenays.Clip 3 bolts off the deck, while climbing through slopers to gain the obvious rightfacing corner crack. Power up it into the flake, and then make some reachy moves heading some broken corners that are followed to the top. There is good pro on this climb, but its a bit fiddly in spots (especially near the top). The crux is harder if youre under 54 (roughly). This is pretty much the only warm up for the crag, and not much of a warm up!...[more] Browse More Classics in International
