Golden Outdoor Discovery Map

Golden, BC is well-known as an ice climbing destination and for good reason. Areas such as Kicking Horse Canyon, Blaeberry River Valley, Mount Hunter, Glenogle Valley, roadside waterfalls in Yoho National Park, and the Valenciennes are popular ice climbing spots and all offer a good range of ice climbing grades. 

If you decide to climb in the Kicking Horse Canyon area please use a drop-off and pick-up system as there is no parking in the Canyon.  Remember that many Kicking Horse Canyon ice climbs or approaches are in avalanche paths so check the avalanche hazard and plan accordingly. 

For more information refer to the guide Waterfall Ice Climbs in the Canadian Rockies by J. Josephson.
