There are many routes on Castle Mountain (see www.tabvar.org/ for excellent topos) but by far the most popular are Brewer Buttress and Eisenhower Tower. All (most?) routes face south for the most part.
Castle Mountain is the obvious peak located at Castle Junction, about midway between Lake Louise and Banff. A hostel and campgrounds are nearby. All routes can be climbed in a day from the campground (or even from Calgary), although there is a really cool hut located on the peak which makes for a really short approach.

Use the excellent topo from www.tabvar.org/ (see the downloads section) and you can't go wrong. All (most?) belays are fixed with bolts. Take the right finish (pitch 12/13) as this is probably the best pitch on the route.The gear is there when you need it, but as is typical with Rockies limestone you should expect to have to run it out from time to time....[more] Browse More Classics in International
