Description

Maybe one of the more popular cliff lines in Canmore currently, this area is documented in D. Galloway's "Bow Valley Sport" and has become a staple in any Calgary or Canmore climber's life. I know I go there to get good views, great rock and fun routes that are well bolted and interesting.

Sun in the morning (East facing) makes for a good shoulder season cliff line.

Getting There

Use the general approach as for Echo Canyon, Take the left fork and then left towards the Hideaway. Pass the Hideaway and continue up switchbacks for a while until you get to the cave area.
