Topic - Canadian Rockies - Banff & Jasper - low grade climbing

nameless_rob on 13 Sep 2012
Hi all,

My GF and I are heading off to western Canada at the end of the month, aim to spend around 9 days in Banff & Jasper parks. The plan is to do an easy 2-3 day trek, some scrambles, some tourist stuff, but would also be keen to do a bit of cragging/easy multipitch (preferably bolted to save luggage weight) - we're currently happy to lead Sev / 2nd VS (so 5.5-5.7 ??).

So... any recommendations where to head go? I've read that 'back of the lake' is good, but touristy - something a bit more secluded might be good.

Also, what rope length & type is usually needed out there? I have a 60m half, so need to buy something new whether we need a single or halves.

Thanks, any help much appreciated!
