Ha Ling above Canmore provides an easy-access summit and a large, low angled upper wall. While it provides excellent climbing, on Canada Day, it doubles as a place to hang our mighty flag. If you’re looking for a way to celebrate Canada all summer, join the Tragically Hip on their final tour, for info on where to climb on the cross-country trip see here.
A few years ago, Tim Banfield joined some friends on a mission to hang a flag on Canada Day off Ha Ling with his camera. The following photos show how to rig a Canadian flag on a mountain. Follow Banfield on Instagram here.
