Description: edit

Skaha is one of the best sport climbing destinations in Canada. The rock is well featured and easily accessible. Gneiss in nature the "bluffs" are a sport climbers dream due to the proximity of quality climbs to the parking lot. Skaha has something for every ability and style of climber. 5.6 to 5.14, slab to roofs, Skaha has it all. Also Skaha boasts some of the best year round climbing weather in Canada. Moderate fall and spring temperatures being climbers from all over the world. While some consider summer to hot to climb in the okanagan it is not difficult to find shady climbs because of the orientation of the bluffs to the sun. All of the west facing walls are great in the morning and the east facing great for afternoons. Lastly, it is not uncommon for climbers to be seen at the beach in penticton or okanagan falls for an afternoon swim before heading back for an evening session at one of the many spectacular walls that Skaha has to offer.
