The Ghost River Valley is a wild, remote area in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Its dramatic valleys are lined with stunning, impeccable limestone. Climbing on featured, textured rock, the area offers a wide variety of styles, from modern, bolted sport routes to old-school, traditional multi-pitch climbs. There’s a multitude of routes for every skill set, including cracks, arêtes, razor-sharp faces, square-cut edges and water-worn slabs. You’ll experience it all while pitching camp in the middle of the Canadian wilderness that can only be accessed by 4x4. River crossings, steep banks and navigating the best route possible through the riverbed is part of the Ghost experience.
