Description

"The longest sport climb north of Mexico!"

Mostly slab and face moves, this all bolted beast is a great outing for someone who really wants to push mid-hard grades on good to great rock in the rockies. Typical limestone climbing on one of the best features in Canmore.

Many consider the crux as being pitch 4. Other things to be aware of: this is a serious route that will take 8 hours for a really good party. You may be showered by rocks on the way up. Climbing on a windy day can be dangerous. Also: this is a North facing climb and so can be really cold, even in the summer months.

Location

51.05833°N / 115.4°W

park as for grassi lakes, cross the dam and head towards the stone giant above (lots of scree). Find a cairn and a traversing bolt line (right to left) and start here.

Protection

Sport rack (20+ quickdraws if linking pitches), all stations rigged for 25m raps.
