The Professor Falls
Professor Falls is tucked into a steep, narrow, gully on Mount Rundle. This is the mountain that runs from Canmore to Banff and is also known as Waskahigan Watchi in Cree. The climb consists 8 pitches of fun ice climbing separated by short snow slopes and ledges. The last pitch is the steepest and hardest part of the climb for a good challenge right at the end! This climb is a favorite among many grade 4 ice climbers and should be on everyone’s tick-list.
Location: Banff, AB. 15 minute drive from Canmore.
Difficulty: WI4 (top pitch can be WI5 early season)
Logistics: Banff or Canmore make great places to base from. Up to two guests can join for a guided ascent of The Professor Falls.
