Climbing Activities

Explore the crags

Some say scrambling is not climbing, but I beg to differ, if you are using both your hands and legs to ascend to heights, you are climbing.  Local climbers are continuously developing sport crags creating new bolted routes. Different types of rock made of limestone and quartzite. Frozen waterfalls makes unique climbs in the winter. An Enterprise climbing wall is available at the Jasper Activity Centre.

Alpine rock routes, and alpine mixed climbing combine to make Jasper a haven for everybody from the weekend warrior to the most serious climber.   

Equipment rental and guides available at the local climbing shop. The local climbing book is available.
