Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

As an experienced ice climber who doesn't get out that often these day, I've done this climbing group tour with RMA before to keep up my skills, run laps on top-rope, and just have fun with others, and it's always a professionally guided experience. They provide all the gear (but you can use your own if you have it), transportation, and their ACMG certified guides set everything up and perform all the necessary safety checks. On this outing, I turned out to be the only participant, and while it would have been completely fair of them to cancel the tour, it went ahead anyway, so I had a private climbing guide for the group cost for the day, which was great. The guide was very knowledgeable about ice conditions at the various climbing locations, and we opted for the best available spot given the deteriorating spring ice climbing conditions. The guide provided belays all day, safety checks, tips to improve my climbing techniques, good conversation, and managed to take several photos of me climbing along the way. All in all, the usual great experience with Rockaboo.

Went ice climbing with Martin in Maligne canyon. we would have loved to ice climb in tangle creek falls but considering weather on the day, Maligne canyon was the best option
Martin seemed knowledgeable about Jasper area and loves his job. We were a group of 3 friends and one other person joined ,Martin went through all the safety points and was patient and attentive to all four of us. It was -20+ with wind chill on the day and he made sure we were warm,offered us mittens and jackets to keep us warm.
Highly recommend Rockaboo and Martin .
Hope I can make it to glacier hike with same team during summer/fall

Absolutely sensational experience with these guys. They are experts in what they do but still had patience and humour for beginners- a joy to experience climbing up a frozen waterfall. Brilliant!

My girlfriend and I had an absolute blast with Rockaboo. We did the Private Ice Climbing experience and loved it! Our guide, Maarten, was very friendly, knowledgeable, had a safety mindset, and took the time to educate us about ice climbing and the gear, how to install ice screws, and the skills needed if we wanted to pick it up as a hobby. He picked an excellent route for us as beginners and we felt safe the whole time. I would recommend this to anyone looking to try ice climbing!

Went with my daughters boyfriend who is an avid rock climber. Our guide Martin was super knowledgeable,not just about ice climbing, but all aspects of mountaineering in the Jasper area. You can tell after talking with him for only a few minutes that he truly loves his job and being able to introduce that love of the mountains to his clients. Martin went thru all the safety points and was always available and attentive to any needs the members of our group had. The weather and the conditions the day we went were perfect. If you are interested in trying Ice Climbing I would highly recommend Martin and Rockaboo.

My children (18 and 15) on this vacation, absolutely enjoyed their climbing experience with this company. They both had some indoor climbing experience and were excited to try outdoors. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was a fabulous teacher! My husband and I enjoyed watching and photographing our children. Thank for this unforgettable experience!

Amazing experience with a guide who helped us navigate the terrain and gave us a history of the glacier. A super unique experience to trek on and to participate in a bit of ice climbing! Wish we were able to travel further up the glacier than the bus tours, given that we paid quite a bit to have a guide navigate, with the expectation of reaching less populated areas of the glacier.

Fabulous experience to walk the glacier and see the wonderful crevasses. Insight to glacier behaviour and the history provided by two experienced guides as they lead us through the walk.
The glacier is extremely windy so I would recommend layers and a buff for your face. The guides do have hats/gloves/some outer coats if required. Jack and Shep did a great job.
