Mount Edith Rock Climbing
Looking at the SOuthwest aspect of the mountain.
Mount Edith is a limestone peak with three summits within view of Banff. The quality of rock is quite good, with many routes reaching the summit from all sides. Their are many possibilities for day routes from a easy scramble to the top, to 300m routes on the north side.
To get to Mount Edith, Drive west from Calgary on the Trans-Canadian Highway 15-20 Km from Canmore. Drive past the town of Banff and take your first exit off the highway. After the exit, take your first right, unto a dirt road leading to the Fireside picnic area. Take the hiking trail trail heading east from the picnic area for the aproach to the routes.

: ... : Mount Edith
A huge, spectacular route made by the late and great Dave Thomson. See topo. Follow the approach for Mt. Louis (the diamond, Kain, Spider), and find the North East face of Edith. Sun until 1 pm and then Shade. Mostly slabby climbing with lots of technical stuff required but lots of rests on the hard sections.
