Mt. Rundle - Golf Course

A new, old crag originally developed in the mid ‘90s by Peter Arbic and Joe Buszowski. The original two climbs are quite a bit harder than described in Chris Perry’s Banff Rock book and have likely not been repeated more than a handful times due to their sparse to non-existent fixed protection. Even with an easier additional route put up in the early 2000’s this crag likely never saw a lot of traffic.

Slabby McSlabface 5.6 114m

A fully bolted slab route with generally good friction. West facing aspect. P1 remains shaded most of the morning but P2-4 get sun most of the day when the sun is high.

Approach:

Park and approach as for the Baldy crag but where the trail turns left, before the single pitch cragging area, you will see a dry rocky creek bed feeding in from the right. Take this right hand fork for two minutes to the base of the route where the large slabs above drain into the creek bed. The first pitch climbs the right hand side of the gully.

Hangover cure - 6 pitch, 10b/c, 205m

This is a 5.Fun, non-committing sport route on surprisingly good rock. The climb was originally started in fall of 2017 with a ground up approach after a friend’s wedding (hence the name....) In Aug 2019, we returned to complete the recommended finish and made it a true sport route. Although the majority of holds are solid, keep in mind this is a new route so watch for loose rock.
