Description

Join me on this course in Banff, Canmore or Lake Louise, in the province of Alberta, Canada. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn the basics of rock climbing in this wonderful place!

Many words come to one’s mind when thinking about rock climbing: adventure, adrenaline, fun, freedom, strategy. That is because it is one of the most complete sports, combining intelligence with physical skills.

Over a period of one day, or more, depending on your schedule and your requests, I will teach you all the basic techniques for rock climbing.

For those with no previous experience, we’ll focus on all the basic items and skills. However, if you want to improve on your techniques, we’ll go over the introductory skills for lead climbs. Some of the things we can review are:

  • Awareness and site safety rules
  • Ground anchors and building top rope anchors
  • Overhead hazards recognition
  • Belaying top rope and lead climbers
  • Body positioning movement skills
  • Steeper Rock techniques
  • Setting and using quickdraws on bolts
  • Mock leads and repelling

Also, there are different venues we can visit, some of them are:

  • The Darkside
  • The Dome
  • Sunshine Slabs
  • Back of the Lake
  • Tunnel Mountain


My goal is that you enjoy these amazing spots in Alberta! However, I also want you to be safe and learn a lot. That is why I will make sure we follow all the safety rules and I will give you constant feedback. I recommend this trip for people in good shape. Additionally, keep in mind that this course is open to all ages.

So send me a request and I’ll gladly answer all your questions. Let me show you one of the most beautiful parts of Alberta, Canada, and share with you everything I know about rock climbing!
