Rock Climbing Season
Rock climbing is typically available from May until mid-October. Optimum season is mid-May to late September.
Private Instructional Courses
These can be arranged for individuals, families and groups. They are customized to meet your specific needs and objectives. They can be at beginner or advanced levels or focus on specific aspects of climbing such as sport climbing, "trad leading", multi-pitch climbing or instruction for kids. Courses can be for one or several days.
This fun and relaxed day at the rock pitch is designed for beginners and those who have never climbed before. In it you will learn basic safety and top rope techniques for climbing outdoors and you will be coached on basic rock climbing movement skills. We welcome beginners, locals, families, individuals and groups.
The primary objective is to have a fun and safe day where participants can get outside, do some physical activity plus take away new skills and experiences.
The Canadian Rockies surrounding Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise are a rock climber's paradise with climbs and areas suitable for every level of climber. Rock climbing is an unbelievably exhilarating sport and we invite you to experience it with Yamnuska Mountain Adventures.
Daily Lessons & Beginner Instruction
Full-day or half-day lessons are available for individuals or groups in the Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise (full-day only) areas by request.
Lessons can be booked by individuals, families or groups. We can accommodate children 5 years and older with a guardian.
Private guiding is a very effective way to accelerate skills development. Our certified guides will give you focused instruction and coaching to quickly increase capability and confidence.
If you have never climbed before but want to see how the Rockies were truly meant to be experienced, check out our daily lessons page. In July and August we do a daily lesson in Banff from $135 per person.
