007 Crags

Canada | Banff | Banff Rock


This interesting collection of small cliffs is located on the hillside above the access road where it begins to descend into the main parking area for the ski resort. The cliffs were explored in the early 1980’s and brief descriptions for some of the climbs (all gear) were recorded in the Canadian Alpine Journal CAJ 67 (1984) p 91. Since then the cliffs have been largely ignored except for a few sport climbs that were equipped in the mid 1990’s but not recorded. Most of these were on Bighorn Crag, a small, square buttress of good, clean rock
that with more recent development, now has five sport climbs up to about 20 m in length.
The short approach and sunny aspect make the cliffs worth a visit. The earlier climbs are
short, gear routes which by today’s standards, may seem quite serious. The sport routes on Bighorn Crag are well-equipped but need traffic since there is some loose rock in the steep, lower portion of the crag and the upper slabs are still a little dirty.
