Spring is finally upon us, and it’s time to head to the mountains! Outdoor rock climbing is a unique experience that allows you to experience the majesty of the Rockies while utilizing special techniques and skills. It’s different than indoor rock climbing and hiking. For a whole new way to explore the great outdoors, consider taking a course in outdoor rock climbing.
Amateur Rock Climbing
When it comes to exploring new heights on the Banff Rocky Mountains, you can hike along beaten trails, or you can learn a new skill. The best way to start outdoor rock climbing in Banff is with an experienced guide. When you register for a rock climbing tour, your Association of Canadian Mountain Guides certified instructor will provide the necessary equipment and training so that you can feel completely safe during your climb.
Advanced Rock Climbing
Advanced rock climbing courses will expand on the basics covered in a beginner’s lesson. Intended for experienced crag climbers, you’ll have the opportunity to spend time working on technique and safety skills and leading multi-pitch routes. If you want to take your rock climbing game to the next level, start training for an advanced rock climbing tour in Banff.
Benefits of Outdoor Rock Climbing
Not only is outdoor rock climbing a great workout in terms of increasing strength and flexibility and burning calories, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to experience fantastic views from new heights. Few people get to see what you see when you’re looking down from above into a river valley below or across a glacier to the peaks on the other side.
In conclusion, if you need an excuse to head to the mountains to enjoy the great outdoors, you can learn to rock climb from an experienced guide. And if you aren’t ready for a rock climbing tour yet, Banff hiking tours are the perfect place to start.
