This.... was..... awesome!! The views from the route are stunning, and the route itself is well thought out. The day I did it was a beauty so a t-shirt was plenty warm, however on a cooler or windier day make sure to bring some extra layers. Paddy (guide) was excellent - super friendly, competent, and thorough with explaining how the gear worked, and he was helpful while climbing. Make sure to pack a snack for the top, and enjoy some time at the "picnic table with the best view in David Thompson country"! Also be prepared, the descent trail is steep and loose in places.... it is not a regular hiking trail until you get down into the valley.... but that just adds to the adventure! I would 100% do this again. Two thumbs up. And yes the water really is that color!

I was lucky to spend a week with Paddy Jerome as part of the Alpine Club of Canada's General Mountaineering Camp in July 2021. Paddy was the lead Guide, and ensured everyone got to climb as many mountains as they could, while maintaining everyone's safety. I was guided by Paddy on three separate days, and I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. It didn't matter what crazy terrain we were in, Paddy was calm, and was able to manage the entire group. I always felt safe with him, even when pushed way outside my comfort zone. While Paddy has a tonne of excess capacity, he always kept the pace well within the group's ability. We kept up a steady pace, but never felt pushed. Whatever mountain adventure you are after, whether it's mountaineering, rock climbing or via ferrata, I highly recommend Paddy as your guide.

Patrick's sport climbing course was exactly the outdoor learning experience I was looking for. He was such a fun instructor but was also super knowledgeable and experienced. I think he went above and beyond to make sure we had a quality course and personalized experience. I also would definitely recommend Patrick's course because the small 4 person class size is an ideal environment to ask questions and get lots of practice and repetition so you feel confident on the rock. Thanks Paddy! Will definitely come back for any future mountain courses!

Itinerary

The via ferrata on Mt Stelfox is called the 'The Fox'. Via Feratta is latin for the 'Iron Path'. It is a man made climbing route built with stainless steel cable that you attach yourself to with safety lanyards that extend from your climbing harness. You climb the via ferrata on steel rungs similar to a ladder which are glued permanently into the cliff. This is a unique adventure that allows people to experience the climbing terrain without having the skill set of a rock climber. The Fox is an exhilerating, uncrowded and peaceful experience with stunning views of peaks and aquamarine lakes as the backdrop to your adventure.

Remember, all equipment is provided for you and included in the price. Your guides are ACMG/IFMGA certified Alpine or Mountain Guides and specialise in ensuring a safe and unforgettable experiences for yourself and/or your companions.
