Experience Indoor and Outdoor Climbing
Indoor rock climbing is a perfect place to start. Because it is in a controlled environment, it allows you to learn the fundamental skills and progress at a pace that works for your abilities.
We use indoor rock climbing gyms as a tool to get you started and motivated to improve. Once you are feeling comfortable and know what you are capable of, we can work together to progress forward with your goals and aspirations.
In Vancouver we work with the following climbing facilities:
– Richmond Olympic Oval Climbing Wall,
– Simon Fraser University Department of Recreation Climbing Wall,
– Climb Base 5 North Vancouver (formerly The Edge),
– Ground Up Climbing Centre in Squamish.
In Toronto and area we work with the following climbing facilities:
– True North Climbing Centre,
– Basecamp Climbing,
– Rock Oasis,
– Boulderz Climbing Centre Etobicoke,
– Guelph Grotto.
We are grateful to work with all of these facilities, owners/managers and their staff.
If you are a gym owner and would like to work with us to provide a more inclusive climbing experience at your venue, please contact us.
Starting this January 2019 we will continue offering adaptive climbing in Vancouver and Toronto.
The Calendar and dates will be shared via email and social media as the dates are confirmed.
This is really what we are all about. We want to share our love for rock climbing in beautiful places, and in a safe, supportive and fun environment.
We provide individual care and attention, use industry leading adaptive tools and techniques, and utilize the experience of qualified guides from Canada West Mountain School. We are excited to be working closely with this highly respected organization to create unique opportunities for people.
Rock climbing outside is something different to each person. For some it’s about just being outside, for others it’s all about overcoming the fear, others it’s learning to trust, and for many it might just be to have a good time with good people in a beautiful place.
Whatever the case may be for you, Canadian Adaptive Climbing Society is here to create opportunities for individuals to benefit from climbing. We do honestly believe that Everyone Can Climb.
Events Coming Up
We had some fantastic outdoor climbing days this season, both here in Squamish and also in Ontario at Metcalfe Rock. Thank you Canada West Mountain School and also to On The Rocks (Leslie Timms).
We are so thankful to all the fantastic participants and volunteers who made each day memorable. Together we were able to create a small community supporting each other, challenging each other, and keeping it fun and safe.
We can’t wait till next spring when the rock dries again!
Training and Education
We believe that everyone can climb, and we would like to share the tools and techniques to make a more inclusive and accessible climbing community all across Canada.
We offer training and educational workshops with climbing gyms, camps, guiding operations: any organization that provides climbing.
