Jasper Climbing

Jasper offers a little bit of everything when it comes to climbing. Superb alpine routes, world famous ice climbs and some quality cragging.

Here's just a LITTLE taste of some Jasper crags!!

Rock Gardens - A rock garden of history for locals. Home to some classic mind boggling limestone routes. Close to town with a good variety of grades. Popular early in the season and a nice reprieve from any hot sun that does occasionally get encountered here in Jasper. Click for pic.

Boulder Gardens - Short and sweet sport routes, with easily accessible top rope anchors. The perfect spot for early season climbing. Just yonder from the Rock Gardens. Click for pic.

Lost Boys - The perfect pumpfest. Big jugs, big roofs and bomber quartzite. Good mix of sport and trad. What else can you ask for on a summers day. Click for pic.

Watchtower - Beautiful, quality, upper end routes towering over the gushing Watchtower creek. A relatively new crag, laden with sustained sport climbs. Click for pic.

Tonquin Boulder - Tucked beside the Astoria River lies the wicked little boulder. Scattered with problems and near perfect landings, it is an ideal place to hang for a while. Click for pic.

Juno Wall - High above the east highway lies Juno Wall. It boasts the longest season with an abundance of quality sport routes in the 5.10 and 11 range.

Morrow Slabs - The slabs sit alongside the Athabasca River and has been home to the guided groups. Set back in the bluffs is a smaller crag that offers extremely well bolted routes, with easier grades.
