The Rock Experience program is designed to offer a unique rock climbing experience to people of all abilities. Our guides are incredible instructors, skilled climbers, and fun to be around. They are certified to the highest standards in the industry by the ACMG/IFMGA. For beginners, the guides will review all of the basic safety systems and demonstrate proper climbing technique. For guests with intermediate climbing skills, the guides will work on advanced movement skills and other rope techniques such as rappelling. For guests with advanced climbing skills, the guides will offer expert level instruction to keep you engaged - be prepared for steep climbing technique lessons, mock leading, building anchors and rigging rappel systems.

My boyfriend had told me his dream was to climb the face of Mount Yamnuska. Technically it was well above our ability. While we might be able to handle the actual climbing, route finding and placing trad gear was another thing. I contacted Jeff in May to ask if it was possible
