Why Ice Climbing?

If you thought rock climbing was cool… just wait until you try climbing up ice..!

Seriously though, ice climbing is an awesome experience that challenges you constantly. It’s demanding, exhilarating, thrilling. It’s the kind of activity where you’ll enter a zone: all your thoughts and stresses disappear and there’s just you and the mountains and the wall of ice in front of you. Focus. Breathe. One move at a time. Succeed.

What Makes Ice Climbing the Rockies Extra Special?

It so happens that the beautiful Canadian Rockies are often considered to be the ice climbing capital of the world. So there’s no better place to try out the activity for yourself — or, if you’re a seasoned ice-climber, to face some new challenges.

Yamnuska Mountain Adventures offer ice climbing programs for all levels, from beginners to full-blown multi-pitch adventurers. Take a class or opt for a three-day ice climbing camp where you’ll adventure through the Rockies, bond with fellow camp members, and overcome icy climbing challenges in the wilderness.

If you’ve never before considered just how breathtaking and electrifying it would be to climb up a frozen waterfall in the middle of a truly spectacular natural landscape, well… you have now! So get on it. It’s the coolest adventure you can have.

In Short:

  • Challenge yourself physically and mentally
  • Thrilling and demanding activities
  • Experience some of the best ice climbing spots in the world at the Canadian Rockies
  • Enjoy breathtaking landscapes
