Excellent central Alberta climbing. Less crowded than the popular climbing areas of Banff or Canmore but lots of really great climbs. Consists of sport, trad, ice, multi pitch, and a little bit of bouldering.

Getting There Suggest change

About an hour and 45 minutes west of Red Deer on highway 11. Climbing areas are all along the highway ranging from Nordegg all the way up to highway 93.
