Where to buy it


With over 15,000 copies of previous editions sold internationally, this completely revised and updated new edition is now in full colour and destined to remain the bestselling guide to one of the world’s most stunning mountaineering hotspots.

Originally published in 1995, Sport Climbs in the Canadian Rockies continues to be the quintessential guidebook that both local and visiting climbers reach for when travelling to Western Canada. Featuring over 2,300 routes located throughout the Bow Valley, including climbs at Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, Kananaskis Country and the Ghost River region, this new edition features eight new areas, 500 new routes, the latest updates, full-colour maps and photos and over 300 marked topos. All routes include difficulty classifications and are completely indexed, including first-ascent information.
