Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing Program in Canmore

My partner and I had an incredibly memorable day climbing with Brent! His expertise is unparalleled and he tailored our trip based on our abilities. Most importantly, he made sure we were safe and enjoying our climb throughout the day. I look forward to climbing with Brent again and would highly recommend him as a guide for anyone exploring the area!

Another great couple trips with Jeff (both multi-day mountaineering and a rock climbing outing). As always he's a great guide that's fun to spend time with and climb with safely and efficiently. Have been out with him many times and plan on many more.

Our guide Phil was amazing! We went rock climbing with my 5 & 7 year old and he was very knowledgeable & encouraging while keeping their safety in mind. The kids learned a lot while having a great time. I would use their services again. It was awesome!!

We went rock climbing in Sunshine Village with Phil. Great instructor! After getting us through all the basics of rock climbing we started the day with a quite easy climb. Through the day the difficulty increased which made it very challenging. We never felt unsafe and were very satisfied at the end! Perfect day! Would recommend it to everybody!!

Rock Climbing Introduction for Beginners in Alberta

Highly, highly, highly recommended. If at all deliberating about getting out with Alpine Air Adventures: don’t. You will definitely not regret spending time with these guys, as this is far from your average “tour” experience; it’s pure bucket-list. Myself and a buddy recently spent the day with Jeff, and he was incredible - such a fantastic day. 2:1 guided rock climbing in Banff, and we loved every second. Jeff was patient (even with a complete novice like myself), and tailored our experience to exactly what we wanted, and the conditions of the day. Just ten minutes from meeting Jeff, I felt 100% comfortable, and knew I was in the most expert of hands. Jeff is incredibly patient and extremely knowledgeable, with a relaxed, super-friendly approach – not to mention an awesome sense of humour that makes it feel like you’re out on an adventure with a good friend. I could not recommend Jeff and AAA more. Amazing – can’t wait to go out with them again.

My guide was Christian from the same company (vs Jeff). I was thrilled with the service, friendliness, knowledge, and professionalism. We went to Sunshine Slab near Banff to sport climb for a half day. We managed to get a lot of memorable climbs in a short amount of time. I would gladly use these guys again.

Jeff was so kind to the kids, he encouraged and motivated our 12 y/o eldest, and was tolerant and patient with our 9 y/o young one. Extremely recommended for families. We had much fun on the Banff cliffs.
