Description

Atop a nice ledge on the huge amphitheater rests a few really good climbs on pretty good rock. One among them, The Convincer, is a huge 35m pitch that has been called "one of the best climbs in the bow valley." Is it? Well go find out!

Getting There

The old way was to climb an approach pitch called "ground floor going up?" which is a dirty piece of garbage.

The new way is to use the Via Ferrata installed and climb up on the right side of the ledge. This is about 20m right of the old access and a bushwack trail leads up to the first rung.
