The Region’s Best

          Rock Climbing

        North Idaho’s top climbing destination is located
        in Q’emiln Park (pronounced “Ka-Mee-Lin”) in
        the heart of Post Falls along the Spokane River.
        The Q’emiln Walls are some of the most ideal
        crag spots in the entire Northwest. They offer
        a variety of sport routes with a short approach
        from historic hiking trails where a tribal village
        stood until the late 1870’s.

        Q’emiln Park boasts 78 acres with over 100
        moderate climbs. With a beautiful scenic
        approach and moments from I-90, these fingertip
        friendly crags offer a variety of the region’s best
        climbing and bouldering opportunities.

        When you arrive, follow the trail for just a few
        short minutes from the parking area to reach an
        accessible rock-climbing haven. Whether you’re
        new to rock climbing or a seasoned veteran,
        this  diverse  geography  offers  a  playground  of
        traditional, sport, top-rope and bouldering for
        all levels and ages. The cliffs are mostly hidden
        under the tree canopy near the rushing Spokane
        River, so it remains cool and shady throughout
        the summer. Though it’s gained popularity in
        recent years, it is not yet crowded and remains
        true to its quiet, breathtaking environment.

        A  majority  of  the  verticals  routes  are  within
        50-70 feet, which means you can check off
        several in an afternoon and still have time for a
        celebratory beverage.
