Scott Eveleigh recently took a tour of Calgary’s outdoor boulders, which are spread around the Albertan city. The boulders are part of the Foothills Erratics Train, which is a 930-kilometre long line of boulder in the Prairies.

“The city of Calgary has a surprising number of climbable erratics spread throughout the entire city,” said Eveleigh.

“While some rocks, like the more well known Split Rock or Crater Rock, lay in their original locations, many of the erratics have been moved, shifted, and/or unearthed in the cities development. This has resulted in more climbing possibilities than would otherwise allow.”
