Rock Climbing Photo: Easiest way up
Hello. I am planning a trip up to Vancouver, BC to visit family during the last week of March. I was hoping to go on a climbing trip for this week instead... but the family beckons so I am trying to combine the two together.

Can anyone provide insight on conditions around this time of year? Is it usually pretty wet still? Are there options for moderate climbs that stay dry?

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

Its usually pretty rainy that time of year, but you could get lucky. We were out yesterday and it was warm and dry at the Smoke Bluffs.

Skaha (4.5 hrs from Vancouver) is much drier. There is typically a pilgrimage of Vancouver climbers at Skaha during Easter weekend.

Agree with above, you might get lucky and be able to climb some, but I wouldnt come expecting to climb.

Where are you coming 'up' from? Smith rock might? be on the way. Which Im sure will have more reliable weather?

Hey I know this post is super late, but I just spent the last 12 days in Pemberton/Whistler. It was gorgeous and a high pressure was situated right over the area. It was gorgeous skiing and climbing the entire time I was there. People were out in force. This was the year to be up there to climb in March! Brian Muller
