The Turret

6 Sport Climbs, 4 Trad Climbs


A trio of small crags sits on a grassy bench above The Fortress. NAcho and Brittle Walls are nothing to write home about, but The Turret has a few quality pitches and sits in a spectacular location overlooking Skaha Lake. It's worth trudging up for the view alone, but the climbing's a reasonable draw, too. This crag is no secret, but it's far enough off the beaten path that it's a good bet on busy days.

Directions / Travel Info:

From the map kiosk in the lower parking lot, follow the main hiking trail to The Fortress. Once there, turn right and hike toweard Red Tail. As you pass Penal Tower at the far end of The Fortress, watch for a steep trail on the left. Follow this trail, keeping to the right to reach the base of Red Tail. Once there, turn left and follow the cliffbase trail uphill. Brittle Wall is the first crag passed and Nacho Wall is reached via a right-hand traverse just above. The Turret is at the far end of the approach trail.
