Just west of Calgary is a large sport climbing area, Moose Mountain, comprised of at least 12 crags with over 200 routes ranging from 5.7 to 5.13d. The vast majority are sport climbing routes, bolted in a thoughful manner to provide safe and fun routes for climbers of all ability levels. Last summer we embarked on a bold mission to climb every last 5.10 at Moose Mountain.
Climbing higher on longer routes, whether it's to the top of a mountain or a classic route, fully bolted sport or trad, multi pitch climbing is the ultimate adventure.
We spent two weeks in Joshua Tree in March 2023. It's the perfect place to learn trad climbing and get lots of practice. We climbed some great routes and practiced placing gear, building anchors and crack climbing.
