Description

Haffner Creek is the place to go if you're looking for a good workout but a low-committment day! The hike is short and the avalanche hazard is non-existent. The area boasts a large number of bolted mixed routes, but some trad mixed routes, and pure ice routes as well.

For the reasons listed above, Haffner Creek is a very popular venue, and can get crowded.

Getting There

Haffner Creek is actually in Kootenay National Park, British Columbia which abuts Banff National Park. From the town of Banff, drive about 30km, W on Hwy 1 to Castle Junction. Exit onto Hwy 93 South for about 19km. Continue South passed the Marble Canyon parking lot (located on the NW side of the highway) and slow down. Park in a parking lot on the SE side of the highway, look for a small building and several solar panel arrays.

Hike the well-traveled trail from the parking lot for 15 to 20 minutes to the crags.
