This year ISM is offering 2 weeks of icefall climbing in the Canadian Rockies. The first week is centred around climbing many of the classic icefalls in and around the area. The second week can be taken as a continuation or as a stand alone week of climbing, but gives you the chance to climb more technical routes at a higher level.
So if you’re new to the frozen world of icefall climbing, you can enjoy learning the skills needed to climb some of the great Classic’s of the Canadian Rockies on your first Classic Canadian Ice week. Classic routes such as Lake Louise Falls and Professor Falls are all achievable in your first week’s ice climbing. Stay for a second Canadian Classic week and you’ll complete your haul of great classics climbing routes such as Weeping wall, Murchison Falls and Guinness Gully.
Alternatively if you’ve already got some winter climbing experience, and in the second week want to move onto more technical ice, then this is the place - there is no better place in the world for Ice. On our Technical Canadian Ice weeks and you’ll get the chance to climb some of the most famous icefalls in the world, routes like Polar Circus, Weeping Wall, The Sorcerer, Carlsberg Column, Hydrophobia, Super Bok. The list is endless and as they say in Canada “when the rest of the world is desperate for ice, Canada has it all, miles of beautiful chrome ice”.
Enjoy just one week of Canadian Ice and get a taste for what the Rockies has to offer or link 2 weeks together and get an ice climbing holiday of a lifetime!
