The Green Monster Ice Climb wall is the primary area for climbing. It is well-traveled and the trail to get there is usually visible in snow, particularly during the fall and spring seasons. The route begins by hiking up a small valley wall and descends steeply to the creek. You can access the trail by walking up the creek’s left bank or by following the donkey trail. The climb takes between an hour and 1.5 hours to complete.
The Green Monster Ice Climb Moonlight area is located in the Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park. The ice climbs here are all in the Elbow-Sheep Creek drainage system. Throughout the year, a small creek runs through the park and drains a large area. It provides an important wildlife corridor, and is generally open and free of avalanche danger. The Green Monster is typically accessible from mid-October to early-April.
