Foreplay is one of the most distant crags from Skaha's southern parking lots, but if approached from the north it's a relatively quick hit. Before 2014 it saw very little interest, but a blitz of recent activity has resulted in a large collection of excellent routes. Foreplay's main wall is slightly overhanging and, at 20 metres tall, brings on a good pump. The routes become less steep near the south end and the slabby Terry's Face and Reilly Rock both have a good collection of technical moderates. If you visit, don't miss 'Back Hand of God,' one of Skaha's best 5.12a's.

Foreplay and Reilly Rock both face due west, providing cool, shady conditions on warm mornings. Terry's Face tilts to the south and gets plenty of sun throughout the day. There are no trees to speak of in this zone, so don't expect any shaded areas for belaying or lounging.

Directions / Travel Info:

Hike straight off the south end of Evergreen Drive on a narrow dirt road with a chain gate. Follow this track up right over a small hill and then south for 10 minutes until it curves left beneath powerlines and forks - keep right. Foreplay is now visible ahead on the left. Watch for a cairned trail that leads up to the base. This approach crosses PRIVATE PROPERTY. Please be respectful and obey all alternate access signs once construction has begun. If approaching Terry's Face or Reilly Rock, it's a bit faster to take Brian's Canoe Trail using the same directions as for the Shortcut Cliff and Behemoth. Walk straight through the triangle intersection at the top of the hill above Foreplay to reach the crags (see guidebook map).
