Rock Climbing

Kamloops has some great outdoor climbing. The Beach is one of the more popular climbs at Kamloops Lake as well as Roche Lake, Prickly Pear, Oregon Jack, Hen House to name a few. Our indoor climbing is also spectacular with challenging routes for every type of climber. 

 

Roche Lake

A small sport climbing crag with a high percentage of quality routes. The 25-30m tall wall of blocky gneiss is a popular crag with around 30 routes at a decent range of grades (5.8 to 5.13a) The wall tends to have a lot of ledge features which makes lead climbing on the easier routes potentially dangerous if climbing at your max. Thankfully half of the rock is overhung making the climbing at 5.11 and up very 'sporty'. 

The Beach

Several excellent routes of easy to moderate difficulty, on a beautiful rocky bench 300 meters above Kamloops lake. Single pitch overlooking a nice view of Kamloops Lake. Quiet area and almost all the routes are bolted. 

The Hen House

Nestled in a serene forest, just a 40-minute journey from the heart of Kamloops, the Hen House climbing area beckons adventurers with its striking granite cracks and slabs. If the rugged charm of the Smoke Bluffs in Squamish captures your heart, you're in for a treat at the Hen House. With seventeen single-pitch routes stretching up to 40 meters, it offers a tranquil retreat into nature where climbers of all levels can challenge themselves and embrace the great outdoors.

Kamloops Climbing Community
