Is it for you?

Guests signing up for this trip must be able to second numerous pitches of 5.6-5.7 rock and have previous experience seconding multi-pitch traditional rock routes.

Castle Mountain

Castle Mountain is home to some of the best alpine rock routes in the Canadian Rockies.  It's towers are easily viewed from Castle Junction on the Trans Canada Highway west of Banff, and make obvious objectives.  Individually, these routes can be completed in a day by very fit guests but also make for an excellent two-day experience by spending the night at the Castle Mountain bivi hut.

Eisenhower Tower

At Castle Mountain's south eastern end stands Eisenhower Tower.  It is the perfect objective for the climber looking to introduce themselves to alpine rock climbing.  Excellent views, great climbing and a technical descent sum up an ascent of Eisenhower Tower.

Brewer Buttress

Slightly harder and more sustained than it's neighbour Eisenhower Tower, Brewer Butress climbs a proud line up a beautiful buttress capped by a large roof.  The route is exposed and is an excellent choice for climbers looking for a high quality, long multi-pitch alpine rock route.

Brewer Buttress can be completed in one day by guests with excellent fitness, or comfortably in 2 days with guests with good fitness using the Castle Mountain bivi hut.

Your guide will meet you at 5:30am (MST) at the Yamnuska Mountain Adventures office on the first day.
