Description 

One of the highest concentrations of ice climbs in the Canadian Rockies, this great area deserves alot more attention than it gets. Most of these climbs form fairly early in the year, but beware that the Yoho River must be crossed to reach most of the routes, and this will not be safe until it is well frozen.

Includes ice climbs along the Yoho Valley Road (AKA Takakkaw Falls Road) from the winter parking area to Takakkaw Falls. The parking lot is located down a short road just East of Field along the Trans Canada Highway, and is well signed.


Getting There 

The Yoho Valley Road is 19.5km or 16 minutes East from the Icefields Parkway and Trans-Canada Highway junction heading toward Field.

Field of Dreams WI5  North America : Canada : ... : Yoho Valley Road Ice
A really fun waterfall with a long pitch of steep, sustained, excellent ice, combined with the 1.5 hour ski approach make for full day out. Be aware that the Yoho River must be crossed (frozen) to approach, be careful! It's best to climb 10m up ice steps to the right and a safe belay cave. The route starts out steep and stays that way, but a few bumps and waves along the way give the forearms a break....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
