Blipvert Tower

10 Sport Climbs, 1 Trad Climbs

Description:

Aside from a couple of isolated moderates on the south face, the narrow tower of Blipvert is the sole domain of long 5.11-5.12 sport climbs, some of the best in Skaha. The lower half of the wall is sheer and fingery, but the upper face bulges, providing a burning forearm pump as the anchors slowly come into view. Of interest to trads is 'Max Headroom' (5.10c), an early Skaha route that's still worthy of attention.

Conditions:
Blipvert faces west and soesn't see the sun until early afternoon. Cold air trapped under the boulders at the base keeps conditions coolar than on other west-facing crags. It can be frigid climbing here in the shade during early-or late -season mornings.

Directions / Travel Info:

Follow the directions to Doctors' Wall. Once there, continue north by scrambling through the Fern Gully boulder corridor. As you exit this corridor, Blipvert will be on your immediate right. There is a small talus field that spreads out from its base.
