Description

A hidden paradise of rock climbing near the city of Calgary, the Ghost valley is a fantastic place to not only climb, but to explore as well.

Surrounded by the kind of natural wonder that people often associate with western Canada, the Ghost valley is amazing. And for 5 days, we would like to not just take you to a number of different, thrilling rock walls, but to also guide you as you explore this great place. We have no doubt that over the trip’s 5 days, you will get to see all that makes the region so famous, from its lakes and rivers to the wildlife, forests and, of course, the Canadian Rockies.

Beginning in Canmore, we will make our way into the Ghost valley. Once there, you will get to choose from a litany of smoke colored limestone walls that vary in shape, size and difficulty. There are single and multi-pitch routes, as well as bolted and trad routes. Thus ensuring that no matter what kind of climber you are, you will get to enjoy a memorable experience.

Some examples of the routes you can choose from include the following.

  • Bonanza, 5.8, 6 pitches

  • Macadamia, 5.9, 4 pitches

  • The Wraith, 5.10a, 8 pitches

  • Consolation, 5.8, 7 pitches

Furthermore, we will be camping in the wilderness. So you can also enjoy evening views of the stars above, as well as take in the music of the night sung by the area’s unseen population.

If exploring a hidden part of Canada’s vast natural landscape, while also climbing on a number of fantastic rock walls is something you want to do, this is the trip for you. To be a part of it, just send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

We can also take you on a 3 day rock climbing adventure that will take you on walls in Banff, Lake Louise and Canmore.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
