I'm heading to Banff in two weeks for my Honeymoon. My wife likes to climb but prefers single pitch. I would like to climb longer/harder routes. 

I did a quick internet search and found Banff Mountain Guides. Can anyone recommend a guiding company and or provide a review of Banff Mountain Guides service?

Thank you,

Daniel

They are your go-to guiding company, but there are many other smaller groups.

There are a lot of guides in the Bow Valley - Yamnuska just being the 800 lb gorilla of them all. You can expect commensurate service of such a gorilla.  Other guides include:

Mountain Skills Academy (the other Gorilla); Cloud 9; Canadian Rockies Alpine Guides; Mark Klassen; or any on the list of ACMG.ca  lists of guides.

Jay Mills is the man (owner of CRAG). He is usually booked out pretty far in advance though! 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
