The Beachside Boulders - Lower Arrow Lake, B.C


THE BEACHSIDE BOULDERS

Tons of quality problems, most of them are basically on the lake. Sea side climbing :) A must for any visiting climber! So much variety and lots for everyone at all levels. Enjoy!

West Kootenay Bouldering




For those who have not heard, the bouldering is amazing in the West Kootenay region of Southern British Columbia and it is going off!

Tons of rock, great locations, variety of problems for all levels, great camping and the list goes on. In effort to create a guidebook eventually, the current info of all the known areas (and currently being developed) is being collected. As of right now it is being put into separate topos/guides to initially get the information out there and people climbing. You can just download it and print it and be on your way. I will be putting up a post for each area with a link to the file….eventually :)

Here are the current areas that will be included:
