Another Rockies classic. Great introduction to multi pitch climbing.

  • Route on Mount Cory
  • The spectacular view of the river and forest below is called Backswamp- in the past it was referred to as Aftonroe by a local writer Jon Whyte- The naming of this route was made in his memory
  • 5.7 Sport Route- 9 Pitches

Approach: Park on the left side of the Bow Valley Parkway, Highway 1A. 20-30 minute uphill approach.

Easy climbing on good rock. This route is often very busy, I found the best time was to go after work during the week!
