Description

Cascade Mountain is home to the classic ice climb Cascade Falls which stares right into your windshield while driving towards Banff from the east on the Trans Canada. Located just minutes from Banff, Cascade Mountain also hosts a number of other moderate classics such as Rogan's Gully (ice) and Mothers Day Buttress (moderate 5.6 trad).

Getting There

Exit at the Banff exit (Lake Minnewanka Scenic Drive) from the Trans Canada highway and head north. Park at the tourist pullout for Cascade Falls (about 100m from the Trans Canada) or at the old Cadet base memorial (about 200m from the Trans Canada) for Mothers Day Buttress.
