Get vertical on sport, trad, single, or multipitch.

Revelstoke gives you the opportunity to tackle great rock climbing and some of the best mountaineering in BC. Revelstoke rock climbing is known for its easily accessible single pitch sport climbing on steep rock. There are also a number of long sport and mixed routes. Check out Waterworld for a totally unique experience; you can drive to the top and rappel down towards Lake Revelstoke's crystal clear waters, or head out the locals' way, and access the base of the crag by canoe. Pick up a copy of Revelstoke Rocks before heading out!
