Justin leading pitch two. Not as steep as this pi...


A great moderate climb, usually done in three pitches.

Park 4.5km North of the Beauty Creek Hostel. The climb is visible from the road, barely. Walk up a slightly graded (old road?) slope and gain the drainage. Descend climbers left.



Descent: Rappel from trees on top and bolt anchors on the left side. Two 60m ropes are required to rappel.

Thin on the top pitch but that's what you get when you climb early in the season in warm weather! Great moderate intro to the Icefields Parkway.
