Long/Lat: -120.195624, 50.496448

Unique Features And Strengths:

A small sport climbing crag with a high percentage of quality routes.

Description:

The 25-30m tall wall of blocky gneiss is a popular crag with around 30 routes at a decent range of grades (5.8 to 5.13a) The wall tends to have a lot of ledge features which makes lead climbing on the easier routes potentially dangerous if climbing at your max. Thankfully half of the rock is overhung making the climbing at 5.11 and up very 'sporty'.

Access Issues:

The crag is on Crown land with active ranch and forestry tenures; watch out for live-stock and heed all signs.

Approach:

Located just outside of Roche Lake Provincial Park, 35-50 minutes south of Kamloops on 2/3rds highway and 1/3rd gravel road with some rough sections depending on the season.

Where To Stay:
