ice climbing

Rockies Ice and Alpine Specialists Inc. are proud to be supported by Patagonia clothing company and Petzl equipment. We believe in their products and put them to the test daily.

Patagonia clothing lasts, their ironclad guarantee is as solid as Patagonia granite, and they make the strongest effort towards environmental responsibility of any manufacturer we can think of.

Our guests receive local discounts at the Patagonia Banff store on climbing days. Ask us how!

Our favourite piece for full on cold weather conditions – The DAS Parka



Petzl is a leading manufacturer of climbing and work-at-height equipment and headlamps, and has been for more than 40 years. From helmets to crampons – literally head to toe – we rely and trust in their gear on every mountain outing.

Our favourite piece – the Petzl Sirocco – is the lightest and most comfortable helmet on the market.
