Alpine Rock

Bern on Mt. Assiniboine N Ridge

Some of the finest rock ridges and high alpine rock climbs are located in western Canada. Alpine rock climbing combines the technical aspects of rock climbing and scrambling, but without the glacier travel of mountaineering objectives. Often your adventure begins travelling along lush valley bottom approach trails, while gradually steepening terrain opens up to alpine vistas. Summits are both rewarding and exactly halfway!

We will be showcasing 5-7 Alpine Rock Objectives here.

Guiding Ratios

Larger more complex objectives are often guided 1:1, while smaller less technical objectives may be guided at a higher ratio. For Alpine Rock trips with minimal technical terrain, higher ratios can be accommodated. Get in touch with us to discuss your options.

Surcharge for BIG routes

For larger objectives or routes with increased hazards, there may be an additional charge applied to your booking. Mountaineering/Alpine Rock days that exceed 10 hours in length, rock climbs that are longer than 400 meters, or ice climbs graded WI5 or higher are good examples of when this surcharge would apply. You may also need to demonstrate the ability and experience required to your guide. Prep days or training days are not uncommon, and can be arranged to see if you’re ready for your chosen BIG route. Surcharge amount can be $200.00 or more per day. Please contact us if you think your BIG route may fall into this category.
