This old abandonned crag has been reborn thanks to the effort of the youth local crowd. With 27 routes to pick from, this slightly overhanging wall will give you a good forearm pump with it’s big moves on sloping holds. Best to avoid until mid-May, many avalanche paths lies above, a significant avalanche could make it all the way down to this narrow canyon.
This is a new crag, some routes are still in the work. Be respectful, and if dust accumulate on some holds give it a quick brush, all you friends will appreciate.
To Get There
From Jasper: Travel south on Highway 93 for just over 40km. Park in a round and sandy pullout on the left side of the road 6km south of Kerkeslin Campground.
From Banff: Follow the Trans-Canada Highway to the exit for Highway 93 (Icefields Parkway). 10km past Honeymoon Lake is a sandy, round pullout to your right where you can park.
Approach: (1.4km) Elevation Gain: 220m
Behind the pullout there is a small open field hidden by some trees. Walk through the opening towards Kerkeslin. Slightly to the right will be a narrow trail that will take you on an easy, enjoyable walk through a beautiful poplar forest for about 20 minutes before getting to a steeper section. A few minutes after you leave the aspen forest and start walking up the hill, look out for a another trail left. If you can see short cliffs in the distance in front of you before turning on the new trail, you’ve gone too far, go back a hundred meter. Follow the new trail for another 15 minutes, through a beautiful narrow canyon with a creek.
