    Itinerary

    Join us for an unforgettable experience of climbing a frozen waterfall. This fun, safe, thrilling experience lets you explore places that are inaccessible to most park visitors.

    This six-hour tour begins at our office in Jasper where you meet your guide and get your gear. We then travel to our climbing site: Maligne Canyon, Tangle Falls, or Edge of the World, based on the weather.

    Once at the site, your guide coaches you on techniques, safety, and gear. Next? We climb!

    All technical equipment included (boots, crampons, harnesses, axes, helmet)
    Wear winter clothing and lots of layers (what you would wear to the ski hill)
    Transportation is provided from town to the climbing site and back
    All trips leave from the Rockaboo office (610 Patricia Street – upstairs). We ask participants to be ready to depart at the start time – we want to climb, not sit around the office!

    Stop At:

    • Maligne Canyon, Maligne Road, Jasper, Jasper National Park, Alberta T0E 1E0 Canada
    • Rockaboo Mountain Adventures, 610 Patricia Street (upstairs), Jasper, Jasper National Park, Alberta T0E 1E0 Canada

    Highly recommend ice climbing with Rockaboo. We climbed at Edge of the World which was hard work (for someone with moderate fitness) but the views were spectacular. I felt very safe and our guide, Tim, was very supportive. I think some of the other climbs might be easier but if

    We had Benjamin as our guide who was absolutely fantastic. He showed us the ropes (literally) and let us go at our own pace while shouting encouragement and tips up to us during our climbs. Would definitely recommend, and would definitely do it again!
