Schedule

Day 1 - Welcome!
Participants will depart to Canmore and meet Climb Away staff at the retreat house by 4pm. Upon arrival, everyone will settle into the luxurious and spacious retreat house. Time to mingle with other participants with snacks, refreshments, and roundtable to review climber etiquette, leave no trace, and safety - leading up to setting our goals and intentions. A welcome yoga warm up stretch and hatha flow will take place around 6pm. Welcome Dinner will be served by 7:30pm at the house using only the freshest ingredients. (think: outdoor patio stargazing BBQ dinner picnic). Bon appetit!

DAY 2 - Climb Away
Let’s make the most out of the first day of climbing - we’ll meet our climbing guides and head over to the crag. Today is a full day of climbing and technique workshops - best practices for cleaning routes, and building anchors. The guides will lead a personalized workshop, reviewing topics such as rock + land respect, belaying techniques, safety & hazards management, and outdoor rope systems. Get started on practicing the moves on the perfect granite! Packed lunches will be served by noon, with plenty of snack breaks for everyone to share their beta of the day. Keep on climbing! At the start of the evening, we’ll return to the house and get some R&R before dinner. After wrapping up the adventures of the day, we’ll head back to the house and get ready for a night on the town. Let’s dine at a local restaurant and try some authentic AB flavours!

DAY 3 - Farewell!
Another day, another climb! This morning, we’ll start with a rejuvenating stretch for climbers session outside, followed by a tasty 8am breakfast. Get your gear ready! Time to meet our guides and put those lessons into practice! Today is another day of climbing and technique workshops - best practices for rappelling, building anchors, and knots 101. We’re sure you’ll be hungry by 12pm - plenty of packed gourmet lunches and snacks to go around! Re-energize and re-charge: climb and repeat. Experience true wilderness and the unique array of plants and animals that will enchant you as you absorb the rich history of the past and enjoy the excitement of present day adventures. Finally, we’ll debrief over a relaxing group meditation on the cliff. The last day is always the hardest - on the road again, back to Calgary!
