Our new ‘Fast and Light’ mountain climbing series in Canada is an exciting addition to our long list of mountaineering courses. They have been designed for experienced climbers who are looking for classic objectives requiring a short time commitment. Climbs in this series have been selected for their quality and aesthetics and should be on every climber’s tick list.
Fast and light climbing is a term used to describe a modern approach for experienced climbers to take only what they need and move quickly across terrain and routes. It is still a fun and relaxed climbing day but requires a higher level of proficiency to minimize pack weight, climbing time and transitions.
