Mountaineering in the Canadian Alps has many features. Steep ice faces
found on Mount Robson and Athabaska in the Rockies provide strenuous
Alpine adventures. The classic ridge climbs of Sir Donald and Tupper offer
moderate climbing on compact quartzite with sweeping panoramas extending
across the Selkirks to the Bugaboos. For aficionados of granite the
Nunataks of the Bugaboos and the Adamants are an endless playground.
Spectacular ridge hikes and scrambles are too numerous to count.
Throughout these ranges a wide
variety of sport climbs have been established providing recreation for
shorter days or practice with climbing techniques. The Alpine Club of
Canada has numerous huts situated throughout the mountains to provide
strategic locations to access the peaks and a dry place to cook and sleep.
The Alpine season starts in June and extends through September. The rock
climbing season is a couple months longer depending on weather and
Let Craig Ellis Mountain Guiding design a mountain
experience for you.
