The Canadian Rockies have long been a dream destination for climbers and mountaineers. You’ll find great spots throughout Alberta’s mountain parks. Everyone can experience this exhilarating sport – there are climbing adventures for all ages and skill levels, even if you’ve never done it before. Feel the thrill of conquering your first rock wall or Via Ferrata. Learn the skills to climb over glaciers and scramble up a mountainside. With the expert instruction of professional guides, you’ll be scampering along rock walls with the mountain goats in no time. And if rock climbing is your passion, you’ve come to the right place.
