A great route in an alpine setting with incredible views along the Icefields Parkway! The sustained nature of the route and it’s location above treeline makes for a big day out on the mountains. Along with the classic Murchison Falls route there are some other excellent climbs surrounding it including Virtual Reality (WI6), But My Daddy’s a Psycho (WI5+) and Lessons of Oka (WI4, M4).
Location: Icefields Parkway near the Saskatchewan River Crossing. 2 hours from Canmore, or 1 hour from Lake Louise or Nordegg.
Difficulty: WI4+ or WI5 depending on line chosen.
Logistics: Either make the drive from Canmore/Jasper/Nordegg, or stay at one of the HI Hostels closer by. One guest per guide is recommended, although two guests may join if reasonably experienced and comfortable at the grade.
