Ellison Provincial Park Rock Updated Climbing Guide!

After climbing all the routes (or attempting) at Ellison I have completed a more informative topo/guide. Just a little more info on the routes themselves, first ascents and better directions. This new topo should be just what everyone needs to make sense of a great little area right on Okanagan Lake. For those who don't know; crack climbing is the main theme here, although there are a few boulder problems and sport routes scattered about, you do need some gear for most routes and the rock is very different to most of the climbing in the Okanagan, high quality granite. The cliff gets shade until just after noon, and the boulder traverse (sweet) under the lakeside cliff, has an area to swim adjacent to it incase you get too hot. Hope you enjoy the new guide, and have a great summer. See you out there.

And P.S, if anyone has more FA info on the routes in this guide feel free to email me at allenclimbs@gmail.com so I can fill them in.
