Getting There 

How to get there from Banff: exit onto the Highway 1 from Banff, take the first exit on your right for the Bow Valley Parkway (1A), drive for about 3.5 km west along the Bow Valley and look for a big pullout/parking on your left. A good obvious trail to the climbs is located across the road from the parking - you can see the climbs from the parking lot.
