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.

Baldy Slabs

Two fully bolted multi pitch routes just across from the Baldy Crag.

The left route is Slabby McSlabface 5.6 114m.
The right side route is Slabby Packsmacka. 5.7 124m

Either route can be accessed from either of the first pitches.

Both are fully bolted routes with generally good friction. West facing aspect. P1 remains shaded most of the morning but pitches P2-4 get sun most of the day when the sun is high.

10 quickdraws and 60 meter rope required.  Using a 70 meter rope makes the rappels easier.

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.
