Focus Friday: Climbing Skaha

Few people outside of the Okanagan’s climbing community know how awesome Skaha Bluffs Provincial Park really is. John’s incredible photo gave me vertigo and sent me looking to find out more about it. It sounds like Nature Conservancy Canada and The Land Conservancy teamed up with BC Parks to purchase land around the bluffs and ensure safe public access. Just this year, that initiative added over 300 hectares to the park, providing protected habitat for up to 15 species-at-risk. Check out the incredible trail network (pdf) that gets climbers to the best rock faces — mountain bikers and hikers can also explore the rugged region with beautiful views of the lake. This is a real gem!
