Join me on this lead climbing course in Bow Valley, Alberta, and explore one of the most beautiful parts of Canada
Rock climbing is an extremely complete sport. You get to feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins, while strategically thinking about your next move.
However, rock climbing could be risky. More so if you focus on lead climbing. Thus, it’s important to do it with a professional guide. So my main goal is that you enjoy this trip and learn to be a lead climber, while being safe.
Located near Banff in the province of Alberta, Bow Valley is the perfect scenario for this course. The walls here are long and have multiple pitches, alongside with classic climbing routes. Making them ideal for a wide range of climbers.
This course is perfect for those seeking to be lead climbers, or just to improve on your skills. It normally lasts 2 days, but I purposely left the itinerary open. So we can review most of the content in just one, or extend it as many days as you want.
We will focus on leading techniques, and go over belaying ones. Additionally, we’ll review everything that has to do with rope anchors, especially how to clean them safely. And of course, we’ll go through rappelling techniques, as well as proper communications. But most importantly, there will be some fine climbing and top notch crags waiting for you!
So if you want to explore this stunning place in Canada, and learn everything you need to be a lead climber, join me on this course! Send me a request and I’ll make sure you learn a lot, be safe, and above all, have an amazing time in Bow Valley, Canada!

Ben guided us to Marble Canyon and it was a really awesome and rewarding experience! Ben was really cool and relaxed about everything, the whole process was made extremely simple, and he went so far as to teach us a little more than we had originally expected to learn. We got extremely lucky with the weather and hiked back with blue skies and the sun shining! Thank you very much!!
Great day of touring in the amazing surroundings around Lake Louise - the vue and silky powder snow were worth the effort of climbing!
I had such a great experience skiing backcountry for the first time! Jeff was an amazing guide and really helped us learn how to use backcountry equipment and avalanche gear. My only concern was that we were forced to change the date of our trip quite last minute and we were not given much information about the trip until only 1-2 days in advance. However, the trip itself was incredible! Thank you for such an amazing experience!
Absolutely exceeded expectations! Everyone had a great time with more than enough variety to satisfy everyone’s skill level. Would definitely recommend to anyone with an interest in getting started or progressing their ice climbing.
Really enjoyed our time with our guide, Troy. 5/5 Experience! Highly recommend.
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.
