    Ghost River is an incredible place, ideal for rock climbers. Depending on the area chosen, the approach might involve using a 4×4 vehicle, which on its own is a thrilling drive!

    You will encounter enormous valleys of limestone walls in Ghost River, ranging from 25 to 600 meters of altitude. There are old time classic routes, with easy approaches for those wishing to learn or improve their techniques.

    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.
