Description

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!

Accommodation

You stay in your house or hotel.

Itinerary

Day 1 to 2: Introduction

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: Multi-pitch

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.
