Description 

Haffner Creek is the place to go if you're looking for a good workout but a low-committment day! The hike is short and the avalanche hazard is non-existent. The area boasts a large number of bolted mixed routes, but some trad mixed routes, and pure ice routes as well.

For the reasons listed above, Haffner Creek is a very popular venue, and can get crowded.

Getting There 

Although Haffner Creek is actually in B.C., most people access it from the Banff National Park, so I'll list it as such. Drive 20 miles north from Banff on Hwy 1 to Castle Junction. Take a left on Hwy 93 for about 10 miles, to the Marble Canyon parking lot, which is on the north side of the road.
Cross the road and hike the well-traveled trail for 15 to 20 minutes to the crags.

Half 'n'Half M7  North America : Canada : ... : Haffner Creek
A classic Haffner moderate! This was the first bolted route to go in at Haffner.Good, solid holds lead to the base of the overhanging wall near the top and a good rest. Move up and hook the obvious horizontal hold on the wall, and clip the bolt to the right (too far right, awkward fall). Move a little higher and if you can, get the next bolt(sometimes covered by ice), then kick your feet up on the horizontal. Work the tools higher, finish off the overhang, and get onto ice, and then the fini...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
