Climbing & Caving

Northern BC is a region of mountain ranges, caves, alpine lakes, rivers and bluffs.
From Copper Mountain to Fang Cave, it’s a perfect landscape for climbing, caving, mountaineering, hiking, and rock climbing enthusiasts.
This large part of British Columbia is home to the Coastal, Cassiar, Omineca, Skeena and Rocky mountain ranges, and climbing and caving activities take place year-round. In the summer, long daylight hours make the cliffs of Northern BC a playground for rock climbers and mountaineers. In the winter, backcountry skiers and ice climbers can discover sparkling snow fields, glaciers and frozen waterfalls.
Exploring Northern BC offers many rewards. Many pristine mountains, rock climbing areas, and caves remain undeveloped and unexplored. Local climbing and caving clubs offer up-to-date information on routes, climbs, and trails. Consider taking a guided backcountry adventure tour to experience the best of what Northern BC offers.
