  ROCK CLIMBING IN THE ROCKIES


Bring Your Pitons and Rope!
Alberta has mountains, Big Mountains, Challenging Mountains: and this is what rock climbers look for. At present, there may not be permits required to climb mountains however you must register with the Banff or Jasper Warden's Offices. It is recommended that you hire a guide. Contact the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides.

Mountain Climbing Jasper
Mount Robson is the premiere climb in the Canadian Rockies as it is the tallest mountain in the Rockies. It is located just inside the British Columbia border. Mount Athabasca, parent of one the Columbia Icefield's glaciers is also popular. We recommend a guided trip, so call the Alpine Club of Canada at located in Canmore.


Columbia Icefields
Hiking/climbing the Columbia Icefields is very
dangerous and should not be attempted by novices.
 

Mountain Climbing Banff
Favorite spots for rock climbing in the Banff area include "Back of the Lake" at LAKE LOUISE, where you see incomparable views of Lake Louise. Also consider the "Tower of Babel" near MORAINE LAKE.

For help in planning a climb in the
Banff area try calling the Alpine Club of Canada.


Canmore area Mountain Climbing
The Canmore area is well set-up for rock climbing. Popular climbs include Heart Creek Grotto Canyon and Grassi Lake. The Yamnuska Mountain School has everything you need including professional advice.
