Description

The huge walls of Phantom Crag can be seen to the Northwest as you drive into the Devil's Gap. The classic routes Malignant Mushroom, Sunshine, and Aquarius, can be found on the lower cliff band. These routes are south facing, so they will be some of the first to become sun affected as the season wears on. This is especially true of Sunshine, as it gets sun most of the day. And since they are all easily accessible from the parking area, it is not uncommon to see multiple parties on these routes, especially on weekends.

Getting There

From the bottom of the Big Hill, head across the flats and take a left on a well-defined track on a berm. Before the end of the berm, turn of to the right and drive along side, in order to avoid a steep, rutted drop-off at the end. At the end of the berm, turn right, then left (toward South Ghost) for a short way, and then right on a well-traveled track that takes you into the Devil's Gap. Continue to a signed parking area at the Banff Park Boundary. It is illegal to drive past this point.
