Yoho National Park has lots of climbing in British Colombia. Major alpine peaks with easy access are the President (3,138m), Vice President (3,066m), Mount Stephen (3,199m), and the peaks around Lake O'Hare. Well known ice climbs, like Takakkaw Falls, are found around Field, BC. For remote and gnarly, there are the Goodsirs (south is 3,562m).
