Revelstoke Rock Climbing

Blanket Canyon

The Blanket Canyon is a very impressive deep box canyon with the fast and wild water of Blanket Creek roaring with enormous energy towards the Columbia River. This area has very impressive and steep climbing and during hot summer days, great climbing. This crag is located 250 meters down stream from the high Blanket River Bridge on Hwy 23 South.
