Essential City: Climbing Havens

Before heading out to the mountains, refine your skills at one of the Calgary Climbing Centre’s two locations: Stronghold in the NW, and Chinook in the SE. With walls over 40 feet high, more than 30 lead ropes, hundreds of colourful holds, and angles that may have you hanging upside down, you’ll find new challenges with every climb. There are also lessons and programs for all levels, equipment rentals and drop-in nights with staff on-hand to assist with belaying. Day passes run $16 for adults, $14 for students, and $8 for children under 8 years old (Page 71). —Allison Onyett
