I have a HUUUGE craving for climbing in the Skaha bluffs and would like to find others who are just as keen!!
It is not an instructional trip if you can't at least lead belay and clean anchors I would suggest to wait just a tiny week and take full advantage of Rock Party!
If you can lead belay, clean anchors, and climb on top-rope up to at least 5.9, then you should be able to find people (like me) who will be able to lead and set up TR for you.
More details coming soon. Camping will likely be free. The Skaha bluffs are right next to Penticton, about 4 hours away East of Vancouver, and it's mostly sport climbing, even though there are a few nice trad routes as well. The proximity to the city makes it easy to get a coffee at Timmy's in the morning, and food and booze after climbing, so no need to bring any food from Vancouver.
If you have a car please make sure to check the corresponding checkbox. We'll likely drive on Friday evening and come back on Monday evening, but I wouldn't mind staying one or 2 extra days if somebody else is interested. Based on the level of interest, I might organize a pre-trip meeting or not.
Please sign up as interested and then committed as soon as possible to ease the organization.
