Lac des Arcs.
Southern Alberta's major climbing area. Centered around the town of Canmore, the Bow Valley has a sport crag in every drainage, and long multi-pitch trad routes on most of the big walls that tower over the valley. The rock season is short (May-August) in most years, but fortunately the Bow Valley also has world-class ice climbing in the winter.
Canmore is one hour west of Calgary on the trans-Canada Highway

The Rock season in portions of the Bow Valley, especially on south facing cliffs such as Yamnuska is more like March to October.
