Roche Lake is crown jewel of the Kamloops climbing scene. With fine routes on quality rock and a quiet forest setting, not to mention a short approach, it’s easy to see why the area is a favourite. The area features 29 single pitch routes, up to 23 m, including the hardest routes in the Kamloops area.
The CLIMBKamloops guide book covers all the climbing in the Kamloops area and it is available as a free download.
