Sick of cold and big mountains, we are off West, wild wild west - canadian style! It resembles more French Riviera with wineries and rich tourists. Beautiful Lake District that has a climbing jewel hidden in its mist - Skaha. Developped only during the 90ies by some outdoor enthusiasts, it is situated in a beautiful canyon-like setting, full of rattlers and other unpleasant species - such as the fascist farmer who owns the parking lot at the base and chases climbers unwilling to part with their last 10 dollars for the parking fee... Anyway, capitalism rules, but climbing in Skaha is probably worth the $10 fee, i should not complain.
Both, sport and trad, mainly 1-pitch long, this is a very worth-while cragging area between the Rockies and the coast. Off for granite and Squamish now!
