Description

The Canadian Rocky Mountains are one of the most stunning places on Earth! Their numerous mountain ranges, high peaks and walls make them a true paradise for rock climbers. And amongst them, the walls located near Ghost River are some of the best in the world! So don’t miss this opportunity to explore this wonderful area. 

Join this trip of 1 or more days and enjoy a great multi-pitch rock climbing adventure in Ghost River, Alberta!

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. As for the expert climbers, you will find multi-pitch routes that will definitely challenge your skills.

Also, I pride myself on not just caring about you having a great time, but making sure you are safe. Thus, I will be there for you the whole time, following safety rules and giving you constant feedback.

Additionally, I will take you to my favorite spots! And, we’ll depart at just the perfect time to avoid the crowds so you get to feel like the whole mountain is there just for you!

Above all, this is a customized trip. I left the itinerary, as well as the number of days open so you can choose what suits you best.

So if you are looking for top notch crags and great ascents, join me on this great adventure. I promise you’ll have an amazing time rock climbing in the Canadian Rockies!

But, if you are looking for a different type of adventure, I also guide this Revelstoke heliboarding week.
