Join Kris Irwin as you climb Eisenhower Tower and explore the terrain around Castle Mountain. If you are looking to get comfortable with longer multipitch routes or haven’t climbed many of the plethora of routes on Castle, why not do it with a local expert? Enjoy three days based at Castle Hut, a small climbing hut perched on Goat Plateau. First ascents of various routes on the Eisenhower Tower were completed in 1926.
With a 2:1 participant-to-guide ratio to facilitate fantastic multipitch climbing, you can explore the Castle with confidence. Don’t just look up at these iconic climbs of the Canadian Rockies as you drive past on the highway… stand on top of them!
