Hello!

I'm solo traveling to Banff from August 16-20 and would love to get some climbing in! Any suggestions for meeting other climbers and doing a day trip? 

Thanks!

Check with the Alpine Club of Canada's Calgary chapter (http://www.acccalgary.ca). Lots of ACC Calgary members will be out there, might be able to join a group. Or, in popular areas like Grassi Lakes or back of the lake at Lake Louise, there are generally quite a few folks around and it's not hard to connect.

Grassi Lakes was recently closed for Grizzly bears, so you might want to check that it is open before heading up there.

Hi! I'm here now! I'm a climbing tourist too. I can climb 16th, 17th and maybe half day on the 18th... I have rack and double ropes. And some draws. Hit me up! I'm Ira 802 595 5800

Hello!

I'll be visiting the Calgary area from August 31st through September 5th. I am looking for a partner/group to do some sport climbing (I am a very light climber, so a female partner would be ideal). I'll try some of the suggestions above to find partners, but if you're in the area please reach out.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
