Recommended Route(s)

Another great all-time Revelstoke classic!


Climb up the right side of the big cave, clip your first bolt, and then its on. Side ways holds, feet and big moves lead to a tricky crux and a final roof. A classic at the grade and a must for any visitor to Begbie Bluffs. Combine this route with a couple more on this wall and you will leave a happy climber. The picture include here is courtesy of my Japanese friend Ryo! Get on it!


It's been a while since I posted some music.....
Now I will post it a little different way, I am gonna put a link to YoUTUbE so you can watch a sweet video of the song as well. Let me know if you guys/gals would like the actual MP3 link to the song, and I would be more than willing to link it on the site.

A couple of bands/songs that Im psyche on at the moment:

The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

Phantogram - Let Me Go

Shapeshifter - Twin Galaxies

Passion Pit - Swimming In The Flood

Slightly Stoopid - Mellow Mood

Cougar Canyon Climber's Survey

A great grade survey that Lyle put together. Many new climbers to Cougar Canyon feel that some of the routes are tad bit sandbagged, in my opinion some are a little off, but this gave people a chance to put in their two cents. After you get use to the climbing here in Vernon, things at least feel like they are consistent to the area(s).

Courtesy of Lyle Knight:

"From the “it’s just data” category, here’s the results from the Cougar Canyon grade survey.  Have a look, share it around by email or blog, it’s a fairly limited response (15) and not a lot of surprises.   At the end of the day future guidebook authors can take the opinions under advisement in concert with their own views"

Aberdeen Columns Rock Climbing Guide Update

Aberdeen Wall
An updated version of the Aberdeen Columbs basalt crack climbing guide is now available courtesy of local Vernon resident Lyle Knight. As of this June, activity at the Columns has been high, with lots of visiting climbers coming for a taste of the very unique climbing. A great addition to the Vernon climbing scene. Thanks to Lyle, John and Gary for all the hard work. See you out there!
