Rock Climbing

 

Canada is a world-class climbing destination due to the quality of the rock and the variety of climbing styles you can sink your hands and feet into. It all depends on what style you really enjoy. For some, British Columbia is their top spot because of the variety and objectives that lie everywhere. Check these out:
