Technically a sub-peak of Mount Lawrence Grassi, Canmore wall is a giant wall right in the middle of the town. Pretty cool but only has a few routes on it due to the long (1.5 hours) approach.

Getting There 

From the TABVAR website

Park at the far South East end at “Peaks of Grassi” in Canmore (Three Sisters Drive / Wilson Way) and follow the “Highline” mountainbike trail up through the forest. After about 30 min. you get to a big drainage. From here you can see the top of the climb and the left half of the wall. Follow the drainage (stay right where it splits) to the base of the climb just around the corner from where the trees come close to the wall. 1.5 hours.

Climbing Season

For the Bow Valley area.

Weather station 13.1 miles from here
