If you plan on climbing in the Corridor, specifically the route Fortuitous (5.10d), take note that it requires either a double rappel or trailing a line up with you - or more simply if you top out - walk off to the north.
Many team seem to rappel twice. If you do this, rappel down to the mid-station of Perpindiculous (the route to the left of Fortuitous), and not to Not Quite Trite (the route to the right of Fortuitous). With a 70m rope it's stretching it, and with a 60m rope, it's a major safety issue.
Please be careful and do the actions that yield the least amount of risk - rappel from Perpendiculous.
Thanks to Sarah Ward for requesting this info be posted.

From Sara Bunge, Acting Area Supervisor, BC Parks, South Okanagan.
The high use of Skaha Bluffs on the long weekends in spring and fall has led to some access and safety concerns. In the past, vehicles parked on either side of the single lane paved park road have made accessing the parking lots difficult as well as being a potential problem for emergency vehicles.
New no parking areas will be signed - there will be no parking along the single lane park road.
If needed overflow parking will be available at the bottom of Smythe Rd.
BC Parks staff will be enforcing the no parking areas.
