Description 


Approach: 20 minutes
Climb: 1 pitch
Descent: rap 1 pitch
Sun: As winter wears on, the top get's sun in the late morning


A nice little outing with a casual approach. This route gets sun at the top early in the day and is generally in good shape all season. The fatter it get's the more lines are available. Probably 3 independent routes are possible.

Location 

On the Trans-Canada heading west:
Take the highway 1A exit just a few km's past Banff and the Norquay Ski Area. Follow the 1A west for a few km's past an interpretive trail sign with a grizzly on it on the north side of the road. Park in a pulloff on the other side (south) of the road about 100m past this sign. Walk another 100m further west down the road to the first creek drainage (with a pipe running under the road) and follow it north all the way up to the climb. About 15 minutes for the approach. The ice isn't visible until you're there.

Protection 

Screws. Tree with tat at top. Apparently bolts somewhere, but I never saw them.
