Description

Join me for this excellent and exciting 1-week rock climbing trip in the diverse and scenic locales of Skaha Bluffs and Squamish, British Columbia!

We will be in for quite a treat as we explore these two popular British Columbian climbing destinations, which offer great contrast both in geology and scenery.

We begin in Skaha Bluffs, near the interior town of Penticton, where we will be climbing desert-like gneiss cliffs. The whole provincial park is like a playground, with thousands of different routes to choose from combining sport, trad, and mixed climbing.

When we are not climbing, we will be able to enjoy the town as well as the picturesque beaches on both the Skaha and Okanagan lakes, which surround Penticton.

After two days here, we will spend another half-day finishing up any climbs we really want to do before taking the scenic drive to the coast and checking into our next hostel.

We will spend the next two days climbing the expansive and pristine granite walls that the area has to offer. Trad climbing is the most popular option here, but not to worry, the area also boasts fantastic sport climbing and plenty of bouldering.

Squamish is especially known for its excellent crack climbing due to the unbeatable rock quality that will make you feel very confident in your abilities.

On our final day, we will do some morning climbing before enjoying lunch together and heading out. Depending on where in British Columbia you need to go, we may be able to get you there ourselves.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an absolutely fantastic week of rock climbing in two of British Columbia’s best spots: Skaha Bluffs and Squamish!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
