Climbers from all over the world can be found hanging around the Obed Wild and Scenic River's wide expanses of rock walls. Even if you’ve never climbed before, you will be able to find plenty of routes that are fun and easy to help you feel more comfortable. We will take every skill level there is, from total beginner to those who’ve been climbing for years!

Some fun climbs to try to include Now or Later and Sick boy. These are both good for a challenge to spend a lot of time on, work and rework! If weather permits: Tippy Toes, Eco Terror, Honker, and K.B. Arete are all very versatile and good climbs! Some beginner routes to build up confidence and comfort include Tiny Dancer, Cow Killer, and Vegan.
