            ProjectClimb at the Skaha Climbing Festival.  All of us from ProjectClimb had a blast at last weekend’s Skaha Climbing Festival.  The festival kicked off with speakers Steve Omishl and Will Stanhope at the Cleland Theater on Friday night.  On Saturday it continued with a sponsor area at the Skaha Bluffs parking lot, with prizes to be won and sponsor booths to check out. Saturday also saw Climbing Competitions for the Beginner and Intermediate category as well as Climbing Clinics and Eco Tours.  That evening it was speaker Beth Rodden at the Cleland Theater.
            
            Sunday the fun continued on the Bluffs parking lot in the sponsor area, while out at the new crag, Muscle Beach, the Open competition was underway.  Six male climbers competed to successfully climb 4 new routes with the covenanted prize of naming the route if you were able to complete the first ascent.  Adam Tutte won with a dramatic finish and FA of the route Beached Whale 5.12c. More photos to come!  That night the festival wrapped up with a beach BBQ and concert where Delhi 2 Dublin rocked out with their unique blend of Celtic and Indo fusion style to an amazing sunset over the lake. 
            
            All in all it was a hugely successful festival with and we’re already looking forward to next year’s!
