Access issues

Some of the climbs are at a popular tourist destination, be prepared to have spectators at busy times.


Drive: Take the Robson Rd exit off highway 3A, then turn right on Broadwater Rd. Continue for ~17.5 km then head right onto the forest road. Continue for 4km then park in the clearing just after the bridge.

Falls Wall: Walk down the hiking trail along the river bank to the waterfall.

Tulip Wall: Walk down the main trail for about 50m (1 min), then take the trail left for another 2 minutes to the wall.

Ethic inherited from West Kootenays

Be mindful of wildlife, especially in more remote areas.
