Description

The Roger’s Pass in British Columbia, Canada is full of amazing peaks. The tallest of those peaks is the Mount Sir Donald (3,284m). And on this 3 day adventure, we would like to guide you on a fantastic rock climbing expedition that will culminate with getting to this great mountain’s summit.

Shaped liked the famed Matterhorn in the Alps, Mount Sir Donald is an amazing climb. We will take the Northwest ridge to the top of the mountain. And from the top, you will get to gaze out at the Purcell mountains, the Selkirk mountains and the amazing Rockies.

Our adventure will begin at Canmore, a beautiful town in Alberta. From there, we will drive to Mount Sir Donald and set up camp at the mountain’s base. On the following day, we will make our way up to the Uto/Sir Donald Col. From there, we will begin ascending the northwest ridge. While not too difficult, there will be some tough spots on the rocks as we get higher up the mountain. However, once we finally reach the summit, you will get to enjoy the tremendous views. Afterwards, we will descend back to our campsite at the base of the peak. The entire ascent and descent should take approximately 12 hours. Finally, on the last day, we will pack up, perhaps some climbing on the crags and head back to Canmore.

Considered one of the best climbs in Canada, scaling the Mount Sir Donald is a treat for any climber. If you would like to enjoy this great climb, just send us a request.

We can also guide you to the top of Mount Louis, near Banff, via the Kain route, on this trip.

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!
