Join ACMG certified mountain guide Patrick for this wonderful 2-day beginner's rock climbing course in the spectacular wild nature around Canmore near Banff National Park, Canada!
May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Canmore, renowned for its craggy peaks, is located in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, just a few kilometres from the famous Banff National Park.
The area is aplenty with crystal clear lakes, waterfalls, forests and amazing limestone climbing walls.
As a highly trained mountain guide I am excited to offer you the chance to join me in this pristine wilderness for some of the best climbing experiences possible.
I’m excited to teach ‘the ropes’ to beginners and ignite that spark of passion for climbing. I have had this passion all my life and with the help our beautiful setting it’s easy to pass on!
On this course you will spend two days learning the basics of how to rock climb outdoors. I will show you how to build bolted anchors, rappel, belaying communication and lots more.
This will be a course full of fun and new discovery, and when you’re not on the wall honing your skills, you can enjoy the stunning natural beauty that surrounds you.
If you want to learn the basics of climbing and begin a hobby that will transform into a passion then sign up now and I’ll be waiting to take you out for the perfect beginner’s course!
Alternatively check out this one-day introductory course also around Canmore for those looking for something shorter but still a great day of fun! Or if you have some previous experience climbing and would like to further improve your skills then consider this 2-day intermediate course I offer in the beautiful Canmore area!

I'm a Full Alpine Guide with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides and an Active Member of the Canadian Avalanche Association.
I has climbed across the lower 48 United States, Western Canada, multiple expeditions to Alaska, and Greece. Calling Canmore home, I feel my best attribute is my passion for teaching and sharing what I have learned over the years of being in the mountains. Combining my mountain experience with my thousands of hours as an industrial rope access tech/supervisor, as well as, being a SAR Rope Rescue Leader, my guests can be assured that they are in good hands.
I holds an Adventure Guide Diploma through Thompson Rivers University, which is one of the world’s premiere adventure tourism programs where students spend two years refining their mountain craft and business skills associated with the adventure tourism industry.
I'm proud to be at a point in my career where I can guide full time and I'm able to share my love of the mountains with my guests. I'm always looking forward to the next adventure and building long lasting relationships with my guests. I'm one of those people who’s passion and love for life is contagious.
Patrick was extremely helpful and patient as I was a beginner. My safety was his priority which was great. Would definitely recommend him.
Patrick was a great guide! We thoroughly enjoyed the half day ice climbing - I would fully recommend to anyone!
What a thrilling experience! My husband has been wanting to Ice Climb for some time, so I arranged this during our ski trip to Banff. Needless to say the process was easy, all gear, lunch and transportation was arranged for us. Being on vacation you dont always have everything you need for a trip like this, our guide Patrick thought of everything, he even brought extra clothing for us in case we needed more warmth!! The whole adventure was more than we hoped for, thank you so much to Patrick and the team for making this memorable!!
