If you are planning a trip to Smith or Spain, Mount Boucherie is the ideal place for getting familiar with volcanic rock conglomerate.
This unique outcrop of conglomerate rock is located close to town (Westbank is about 8 minutes, and Kelowna 15 minutes) and directly below the visible tower of Mission Hill winery. Climbing on Mt. Boucherie’s 5 walls consists of easy to difficult technical slabs with pockets and crimps thrown in. There is one steep wall of 5.12 sport climbs (The Cell) and 3 beginner climbs for top-rope and rappelling.
With its easy approach, southern exposure and lake level altitude, it is possible to climb Mount Boucherie every month of the year.
