Climbing & Mountaineering Summer Outdoor Activities

If the thought of becoming a human mountain goat hanging off the side of a cliff terrifies you – don’t worry. There’s a starting point for everything, even conquering mountains. • First time: Via ferrata is a type of mountaineering up slopes equipped with steel ladders, steps and cables. It makes scaling a mountain way more accessible. Get the same views of Mt. Norquay as a peregrine falcon does – no experience required. • Rock star: The canyons and cliffs in the Canadian Rockies are what rock climbers’ dreams are made of. Breathtaking views meet heart-stopping multi-pitch routes up limestone and quartzite. Fledgling climber? Sign up for a climbing class. You’ve got to start somewhere.
