Ice Climbing

Golden, BC is well-known as an ice climbing destination and for good reasons. 

With many great areas to choose from, this is an ice climbing mecca and a great spot to experience this exhilarating sport. 

Areas such as Kicking Horse Canyon, Blaeberry River Valley, Mount Hunter, Glenogle Valley, roadside waterfalls in Yoho National Park, and the Valenciennes are popular ice climbing spots and all offer a good range of ice climbing grades. 

For more information refer to the guide Waterfall Ice Climbs in the Canadian Rockies by J. Josephson.
