Mt. Tupper

The West ridge of Mt. Tupper is truly one of our favourite peaks to guide. The inspiring position amongst the beauty of the surrounding Rogers Pass mountains and the fun climbing with good rock are the main parts of why we love this peak so much and why we love sharing it with our guests. A…

Cascade Falls

There are a number of fun and low commitment rock routes in the immediate Cascade Falls area. The routes are: Minihappa (5.4, 120m/4P), Keeping it Riel (Since 1885) (5.6, 150m/4P), Battle of Seven Oaks (5.6, 136m/4P), and Battle of Batoche (5.6, 136m/4P). The quick access and solar facing nature of these routes make them especially…

Joy

Joy is a very fun and unique climb that follows an incredibly striking right facing dihedral up the Mt. Indefatigable slab for nearly 2000 feet or 606 metres of climbing! Don’t expect any bolts though, as Joy is a pure trad climb that is bolt-free, which is a very special thing around here. The climbing…

Kid Goat Climbs

This is not a specific climb but an area with bunch of great, low-commitment, and fun multi-pitch rock climbs (trad, sport, or mixed). This area is best for shorter days, intro and educational days, and bad weather days as this front range area typically sees drier weather. Some of our favourite routes are Twilight Zone…

Ha Ling- NE Face

A beautiful peak located next to the town of Canmore. The NE face is a striking line with 12-pitches of climbing that has been very popular for decades. Ha Ling peak is also very popular with hikers who hike up the backside and then look down upon Canmore and the Bow Valley. 

Grillmair Chimneys

This historical 9-pitch climb was the first technical line up the steep south face of Yamnuska and is still very popular today. The line follows a right leaning weakness that has an alpine rock feel and finishes with a fun, airy chimney and the memorable worm-hole.

Easy Street

This 6-pitch climb is a great Yam intro route and gets 2-star climb. The climbing is consistent in the 5.4-5.6 range, takes traditional rock placements, and makes for a nice day out, especially if these grades are your jam. The climbing is quite fun with a good mix of slab and crack climbing, which results…

Mother’s Day

Climb the striking prow line on the left-side of Mother’s Day Buttress in 8-pitches. The beautiful bird’s eye views of the surrounding mountains is what makes this climb so rewarding.
