How it works

At Hoodoo Adventures, we offer many options to the climbers in the Okanagan-Similkameen region. Whether you are still a beginner or an intermediate, we have the right option for you. Our team will guide you at every step to ensure your involvement in the whole activity. Take a look at the below points to learn more about what we can do for you.

  • Courses: For the newbies, we offer an introductory climbing course and a family introduction course, and for people who just need to brush up their skills, we provide a belay refresher course.
  • Bouldering: At our facility, we have 15-foot high bouldering walls for your solo climbing endeavours. No ropes and special skills are required to do this.
  • Ropes: We offer top-ropes only to people who are looking to partner up with a friend or climb with their kids. You can ask any of our professionals to put them up for you. If you need to learn about the usage of ropes, please contact us. Our trained professionals provide private belay service with 48 hours’ notice.

groups & programs

school groups

Rock climbing helps kids to learn how to conquer fears, problem solve, develop strength, coordination, confidence, and support one another. No matter your physical ability, you can find some measure of success in rock climbing.

2-hour climbing program

  • When you choose this, our team will come to pick you and your class up and bring you all to the climbing gym for a 1.5-hour climbing session (2 hours including shuttling.) This session covers climbing techniques, safety, equipment, rope work and fun games with passionate leaders.
  • $16/student – including transport (up to 27 passengers)

1-hour bouldering session

  • In this program, kids will be shown some basic climbing techniques, and will then be free to climb whatever they want in our climbing gym. Bouldering doesn’t involve rope work. So, this would be a great option if your timeline is tight, as the kids will get more climbing and less talking.
  • $10/student

8 Punch Pass

  • Start a climbing program and get them in our gym more than once. At our facility, you will be able to book dates well in advance and it can be spread throughout the school year. The kids will be shown different climbing techniques and we will get on the mats and coach them throughout the 8 sessions so they can improve their skills during the 1.5-hour long session.
  • $85/student for 8 sessions

Intro to Climb

  • The topics including in this program are safety, equipment, belaying, communication and commands, climbing techniques, knot tying and more. We can do one session or if you want to go into more depths and get their skills to the next level we can do two sessions on two different days. These sessions go on for 2.5 hours with about 2 hours of instructions. For bigger groups, we split them and rotate between learning stations. And we, of course, we make sure that they get some climbing done as well.
  • $15/student/session – can be followed by an outing at the Skaha Bluffs (ask us about pricing for this).

indoor climbing gym

As Penticton’s first and only indoor climbing facility, we are excited to offer many membership, drop-in and program opportunities for the community. With a new generation of “gym rats” rising as a cool new sport emerges for families while avid Skaha Bluff’s climbers now have a place to train year-round, we are stoked to see all the passion for climbing in our town!
