A favourite Ghost ice climb by many. It’s long, challenging, very aesthetic, routinely
forms, and is a ton of FUN!
DirectionsThe Ghost (Don Getty Wildland Prov. Park). Drive into the north ghost 5.9km from the btm. of the big hill. The north ghost tends to have more challenging access than the south ghost (2hr drive from Canmore). Water x-ings (ie. ice shelves) and snow drifts are typical challenges.
ApproachHike the old road to the first Johnston Lake (roughly 2km), and then hike up and west to the base of the climb (1.5-2hrs or 3.8km hike with 350m elev. gain).
