Top Rope Rock Climb - Vantage (Frenchman Coulee)

Great day out climbing at Vantage: Sunshine Wall classics and easy sport routes at the Feathers

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Vantage was in fine shape with temps around 60 degrees.

We met early and headed strait for the Sunshine Wall.  I find that on Sunday morning this works well, we were there getting ready before 9am.  No one else around!  We had the pick of routes on the Sunshine wall and chose the classic group in the middle of the King Pins:

  1. Vantage Point -- sport 5.8
  2. Skip 'em or Clip 'em -- sport 5.8
  3. Crossing the Threshold -- trad 5.8
  4. Air Guitar -- trad 5.10a
  5. Whipsaw -- sport 5.9

I put up all these routes myself, the others were all just getting into leading.  So, with that in mind, we headed over to the Feathers in the afternoon and climbed some of the moderate sport climbs on the N. side of the Feathers.

All-in-all a great day out!
