Nanny Goat is the next buttress over from Kid Goat. It hosts a good number of sport climbs and the classic ice/mixed route Coire Dubh Intergrale is the drainage right next to it. Good rock as per the rockies on limestone similar to Kidd but with longer routes.

The shade comes into the cliff early during the afternoon as this cliff faces east. Early sun but it gets cold! Bring a jacket unless it is August!

Getting There 

Park across the way from the Francis Cook Landfill (right side going to Calgary on the 1A) and cross the highway. Head towards the gate and take a right trail off the side to go around the landfill, following the fence.

Once you enter the true trail, you will get to a big, rocky Y in the road. Take the right fork for Nanny goat as the left goes to kid goat. There should be a rock pile between the fork (Aug, 2015).

Continue on the trail until you are almost at the drainage for Coire Dubh. You will enter a short meadow. Before going back into the woods take a faint trail on your right. If you aren't following the left side of the drainage you are too far.

Once at the top of the drainage you will have to back to the ledge with the climbs. Go left into the woods. The climbs will be obvious as you look up and see bolts.

This really good route is one of the best in the Bow Valley area for sport multipitch. Has a bit of everything and is really good and varied. It was established in excellent style of bolting on lead and it's ease of access and amount of traffic have really cleaned it up (almost no loose rock on this climb, which is something to be said about the chossies). It is the third route in and is approached via the Nanny Goat Approach. Look for a 3rd class ramp that goes into a right facing corner. Those...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
