About Arrow Lake Bluffs:

The Arrow Lake Bluffs are a series of crags ranging in heights of 20m to 100m. The walls are all found on the North Shore of Arrow Lake between the Hugh Keenly Side Dam and Syringa Provincial Park. With the majority of development occurring above Scotties Marina. The rock here varies in quality, but is for the most part very solid. So far most of the climbing is restricted to trad lines, and the few that have been developed are of excellent quality, offering steep, well protected lines on bomb proof rock. People have been climbing on these bluffs for many years but climbing development has recently taken off, thanks in part to local climber and route developer Aaron Kristiansen.
