The Bow Valley Rock Fest

Our 2018 Speakers


Adam Ondra

According to The Economist Ondra is "regarded as possibly the best climber ever to fondle rock". We are beyond stoked to have him visit us in the Bow Valley and cannot wait to hear him tell his stories on stage. Thanks for being apart of the 4th Annual Bow Valley Rock Fest Adam!

Sasha Digiulian

Sasha is climber from the USA, who in '12 became the first American woman to climb grade 9a (5.14d). She has climbed over 30 First Female Ascents, as well as 8 significant First Ascents, she became the first woman to free climb Magic Mushroom (7c+) and in '17 she did the first female ascent of Mora Mora. Those are just a FEW of the many amazing achievements she has under her belt.



The Mission


The Bow Valley Rock Fest is a grassroots, community driven event. It is a reason to gather climbers of all ages, locations and backgrounds to the great Canadian Rockies each summer to celebrate, educate and inspire.

CELEBRATE:

Canadians have been given a tremendous gift with this spectacular mountain range - our intention is to bring people together to celebrate our peaks, valleys and culture.

EDUCATE:

We plan to educate our attendees on personal climbing safety, overall mountain awareness, and environmental concerns.

INSPIRE

Through the arts of photography, painting and story telling, we hope to inspire our growing community of climbers to get outside and live life to the fullest.
