Rock Climb Escargot Corner

Rate this Adventure Canada Mount Norquary West Face Parking

Added by Rayne Grein

One of the best multi pitch trad routes in the Rockies! This rock face contains several unique fossils- hence the name of the climb.

  • 6 Pitches
  • 5.6-5.8 Climbing

Sustained climbing for the grade. You follow up 2 right facing corners with some face climbing.I really enjoyed this route and found it worth the long approach.

Approach requires a few hours of consistent elevation gain and fair bit of scrambling. If you don’t know where you are going it is very easy to get lost on this approach. Traveling eastbound on the TransCanada Park at the viewpoint over vermillion lakes, cross the road and fence. Follow the animal trails under the power lines.

I'm probably not qualified to give a thorough description of this route having only done it once, but with the guidebook out of print there isn't a ton of information out there.
