Spillimacheen is located on a south facing hillside on the west side of the Columbia valley a few short miles along a dirt road from the small hamlet of Spillimacheen.

The climbing is found on two distinct cliff faces each with a very distinct character. The larger of the two, Hueco Wall (named after the distinctive hueco features found on the wall), has more traditional climbs some of which are 2 pitches long. The shorter more compact cliff, Nathan's Wall, has a number of fingery climbs on good rock, but with very sharp compact holds.

Getting There 

Turn of the main highway 95 just south of the Spillimacheen Trading Post. Follow the road over a level crossing and a bridge until a fork at 1.5 miles. Take the left fork, passing the hydro electric station on the left. When possible take a sharp left hairpin and climb up the slope.

After 4.5 miles from the highway you'll see the cliffs. First is Hueco Wall, and another 1/2 mile down the track you'll see the parking lot for Nathan's Wall.

This route is sandwiched between two sport routes. To the left is Darkness Descending; the right, Too Many Ledges. Ascend the easy, right facing corner to a ledge. Here you will find a bolt. Ascend the thin cracks up the face. The pro does look meager, but perception is not reality. The right crack in particular hosts lots of good pro. Traverse left. Ascend the easier terrain to the anchor station....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
