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.
