Description 

A long slightly runout sport climb that was re-equipped in 2011 by some local guides. Generally good rock with great position high up above the Banff golf course and Bow River. The 5 minute approach makes this a popular route. Be wary of rockfall if another party is above as there are lots of loose scree ledges up high


Location 

Park at the climbers pullout lot along the Banff Golf Course road near the clubhouse. It's just at the base of the Mt. Rundle ridgeline. Walk uphill for 5 minutes to find the bolts on the big slab next to a large left-facing dihedral.


Protection 

draws, all pitches are link-able.

Great first multi-pitch climb for my 12-year old. There is a lot of 4th class, so approach shoes are adequate for the entire climb. The pitches are very short and we skipped quite a few anchors to make it five or six pitches instead of 11. BE WARY OF LOOSE ROCKS!
