Description:

Stoked to use your newly gained knowledge from Longhike? Want to climb somewhere new and different? Know that going sending rock will improve midterm marks? (this is more-or-less 100% guaranteed) Let's go on a climbing trip!

We will be going to Skaha Bluffs, just outside of Penticton, BC. Skaha provides a lot of fantastic sport and trad climbing for all levels. Possible locations for this trip are Vantage (mostly sport), Leavenworth (mostly trad), and Skaha (mostly sport). The final location will be decided upon by interest and weather. If it's really nice, maybe people will prefer to stay in Squamish to climb slab. Note that Vantage and Leavenworth are in Washington, which may cause border headaches depending on your nationality. We'll drive out either Friday night or Saturday morning and camp until Monday. We'll try to camp as a group and meet up in the evenings, but will go our separate ways each day.

 

This trip is not instructional, nor beginner friendly. There will not be any supervision or checking of climbing systems. You, or someone you are climbing with, must be confident to do things safely and independently. We will separate during the day and won't be climbing as a group, so it is all up to individual climbing groups.
