Cumberland Climbing Wall

This page was last reviewed on April 9, 2024.

Cumberland Climbing Wall

The climbing wall is typically open from mid-October to the end of April. All climbers must sign a climbing waiver before climbing the wall. A climbing wall supervisor is present during Open Climbing sessions to ensure the safety and security of all climbers and climbing wall attendants are on hand to help belay. To maximize your time on the wall, it’s recommended you bring your own belay partner if possible, as wall attendants may be occupied with other climbers. If you would like to learn to belay, please take a Learn to Belay lesson offered approximately once a month (see the current rec guide for details).


Please note that the climbing wall is open from mid-October to the end of April each year. For specific opening dates and climbing times, please refer to the current recreation guide or call 250.336.2231.
