On the south side of the rail yard there are a few...


A few (probably 10 or less) sport routes wedged between the train tracks and the Pend Orielle river. We found the quality of these climbs to be far more enjoyable than the climbs on the north side of the road at the main faces and the approach was really simple, plus you can jump in the river and take a dip if it gets too hot.

There are easy to moderate routes here, from vertical to over hangs.

Watch for trains of you are climbing or bouldering near the tracks.

Getting There 

On the South side of the road from the parking pullouts, Park at the first pull out, cross the road at the west end of the guard rail and follow the trail down across the train tracks.
