Icefields Parkway Rock Climbing
One of the amazing vistas of Icefield Parkway.
In the Josephson guide, this world-reknowned area is appropriately referred to as the 'epicentre of ice climbing in the Rockies.' Between the Trans-Canada Highway and Jasper, you'll find a lifetime's worth of ice, mixed, and alpine routes. One can hardly overstate the quantity and quality of the climbing that exists here.
For simplicity and clarity, the Icefields Parkway will be broken into a number of sub-areas.
Drive north on from Banff on the Trans-Canada Highway until just north of Lake Louise. Just before Hwy 1 turns west toward Field, look for an exit on the right to Jasper, and take Hwy 93 north.
Travel conditions on this road can deteriorate quickly with wind and/or snow, so proceed with caution!
