Begbie Bluffs

Raptor Roof: free-climbed in August 2010 by Philippe Blouin, 5.13a

202. The Portal: the fist pitch has poor quality rock. This climb is incorrectly listed as 2 stars in the guidebook Revelstoke Rocks, it has no stars.

Blanket Canyon

IPP: free-climbed in July 2010 by Harry van Oort, 5.12c

92. Tree Rustler: this climb is down-rated to 5.10b, more likely a better rating.

89. War on Terror: Olivier Lardin finished bolting this climb and free-climbed it (5.11c XR) in July 2010, renamed to Conditioner. Unfortunately the start is rather run out and a potential fall could land you in the wild water of Blanket Creek.
