Climbing Conditions

Heads up for ice climbers in the Field area...

Parks Canada Visitor Safety and Kananaskis Public Safety will be holding their annual technical ice rescue practice on Guinness Gully, Monday, November 25th and Tuesday, November 26th.

Consider choosing alternate ice climbs for those two days. We will certainly work with other parties on the route as needed, but please be mindful of ice fall and expect delays if you decide to climb Guinness Gully on Monday or Tuesday.
