DescriptionThis mountain located just north of the Banff townsite is best known for the ski hill built on its east face. Norquay has several other attractive elements beyond skiing however. In addition to a fine scramble up the east side of the mountain, excellent rock climbing exists on the slabs of the west face of the mountain.
The slabs are divided into two climbing areas, the lower slab and upper slab. There is an extensive flat between the upper and lower slab, and both slabs are accessible from the bottom.
The rock climbing on Mt. Norquay is detailed in the as yet unpublished Banff Rock guidebook, currently available in chunks at tabvar.org
