Description:

Hey all, who's down for a week-ish of sweet climbing in Skaha as a finale to the summer? Yes, that was a rhetorical question,  I know you know you want to, and you know I know you know you want to

This trip will be self-organized with respect to climbing partners and food, but I'm putting it up here hoping for us to get some carpooling going and some camaraderie around the campfire. All levels of climbing ability are welcome, however gear won't be provided.

A little background on the Skaha bluffs if you've never been:

-mostly sport climbing, with some nice trad to be found as well

-near a lake, with loads of campgrounds

-near Penticton, so stocking up on food and more importantly drinks, is easy peasy

-its driest from August-October

- over 64 crags

- over 600 routes

- over 100% awesome

I know a week of climbing is a large commitment for some, so when signing up please note the amount of days you can commit to. That way we can organize rides back and no one gets stranded.

I can also reserve campgrounds once I get a rough idea of how many people want to show up.
