Spring is here
After seemingly one of the longest winters ever, the snow is now evaporating and the birds are singing once again.
I have had reports that Kelowna and Penticton is open and ready for climbing (at the lower elevation crags for sure), I haven't heard anything about Boulder Fields in Kelowna. I have confirmation that Vernon's Cougar Canyon is good to go, just needs some good weather to make it more enjoyable. No word on Syphon Creek or Haines in Salmon Arm.
Some things that are in the works (but not guarenteed) for the Shuswap rock climbing scene this year include the official updates for Syphon Creek's rock climbs in Salmon Arm and a possible release of an updated Haines Creek in the same town. There may also be a re-release of Mara Crags that includes the new development and first ascents that happened there last year.
I hope you enjoy your winter and have a great rock season!
