Canadian Rockies Ice in Ice Climbing Forum Posted November 18, 2003 · Edited November 18, 2003 by AlpinistAndrew Myself, Masternate32 and another friend took a trip to Banff this weekend. We left B'ham Friday afternoon and left Banff Monday afternoon. It was awesome. I had never seen the Rockies and it was amazing. Ice everywhere. We climbed Cascade the first day. It was a bit thin and wet towards the top, but a great climb. The next day we climbed most of Louise Falls, except for the final pitch, which was wet and chandiliered ,nobody that day that we saw climbed it or attempted to. We then went over to Cable Gullies and climbed a short and steep WI 2 and toproped a mixed climb. On Monday we went to Canmore Junkyards and did some easier stuff and toproped some more mixed stuff. It was a great trip. Lots of ice. The drive (10hours) was long, especially on the way back when we drove through a blizzard for several hundred kilometers. Also, props to Masternate 32 for driving.
