Andrew Neis has uploaded topo to a number of boat-access wall on Williston Lake in B.C.’s Peace Region. The routes have been worked on over the past few years.

The two limestone crags are Fish N’ Chips and Canada Day Buttress. Andrew was joined by other climbers for the route development, including Michelle Neis. The majority of routes are 5.10 and there are a number of projects listed.

Williston Lake was created after the building of the W.A.C. Bennett Dam in 1968 and the water levels can fluctuate up to 20 feet, which can sometimes make reaching the bolts a little tricky. Andrew is the administrator of the B.C. Peace Region Facebook page here, which is where you can find the topos.
