      This short was for a multisport film fest. Not every video is aimed only at boulders.

    Negativity from climbers about a really nice video showcasing what looks like a great area and introducing bouldering to new people. You do yourselves a disservice.

    Videos like this are my absolute fave…new area, great lines, stunning scenery, a back-story, and a focus on grades that are hard and inspiring, but not so difficult as to be impossible.

    I am also curious how the weather up there affects route development. I imagine the climbing season is short and the moss is pretty aggressive. Does it require a lot of upkeep?

      Hey Colin,

      The Boulderfields are quite climbable from April until November. The moss isn’t much of a problem. In fact a lot of boulders only have a thin layer of black lichen on them. Many of the lines we cleaned 5 or 6 years ago still look brand new today, even without a ton of traffic. The Fields is one of our higher elevation areas, but as BC Boulderer said, there are a bunch of other areas all over the Okanagan, and while I write the bouldering guide for all the areas in the Okanagan, it’s pretty clear that there are many areas with lots of lines left to see FA’s. Late December/ January/ early February are pretty tough months to climb outside up here. If you want any info, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

    Colin, the weather in the Okanagan is quite mild in the winter. There are probably only a few months where the development would be slowed down and you couldn’t climb.

    The road up to the feilds can get a bit haggared once the snow starts and you have to wait untill about april to be able to get back up. Good news is that there are a bunch of nearby bouldering areas that are open and dry almost year round. most have seen al teh development they’re going to get, but there are a few gems left.
