Product Description

Ghost Rock is a guide to sport and multi-pitch rock climbs in the Ghost River and Waiparous Creek areas west of Calgary. It gives detailed route descriptions, along with chapter by chapter parking access and approach details.

By local standards, the Ghost has climbing on above average rock. Even with 200 new routes since the first edition it is still, however, woefully underdeveloped. Already a mecca for ice climbers, the Ghost is fast becoming one of the premier rockclimbing areas in Western Canada. It is a virtual candy store of new routes and will remain so for some time to come. Over 35 kilometres of steep cliff line, coupled with its remote and relatively wild nature, make for an unforgettable rock climbing experience.

great work...
which is standard for Andy....topos are the most critically done...well discussed variations and options are also a big plus...there are many in the Bow Valley that never think of the Ghost for rock (more for WI), but there is tons! just as varied as the ice....make sure it is the 3rd edition.
