Canmore Junk Yards

Canmore Junk Yards

The Canmore Junk Yards is the best beginner and practice ice crag we have, close to town and lots of easy grade 3-4 ice to climb.

The main wall has 30 meters of grade 3 and a short curtain of steep ice on the left side.

Scottish Gully is a favourite with 40 meter grade 3 ice, surrounded by rock.

There are also a few very good 30 pitch climbs on the Upper Wall, next to the main waterfall.
