Type of Trip
I recommend this program to travellers who are coming to Banff, Canmore or Lake Louise. In fact, it is great for people that want to discover the area and review the basics of climbing. Our base will be in the Bow Valley. We’ll get to a variety of different spots and we will of course be flexible according to the weather.
You stay in your house or hotel at night and don’t go to a hut or camping, so that we don’t have to carry much stuff during the day.
The 4 days will permit us to focus on traditional climbing.
Did this rock climbing program catch your attention? Then please contact me! Another great place where I like to take my clients is Climbing in the Bugaboos, check it out!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
Day 1 to 2:
Emphasis on reviewing and introducing skills for people who want to lead climb at the crags. We will discuss leading techniques, belaying techniques, setting up top rope anchors and how to clean them safely, rappelling, proper communication and of course do some climbing. This is a great course for the first time outside leading climber or as an early season refresher.
Day 3 to 4:
The 2 last days will permit us to focus on traditional style climbing. Introducing gear placements, anchor building and doing some traditional leads with instructor feed back. The 4th day we will go climb a multi-pitch traditional route.
You stay in your house or hotel.
The price does not include 5% GST.
For the multi pitch day, the guide ratio is 2:1.
