Rate this Adventure Canada Takakkaw Falls

Added by Rayne Grein

This was one of the most unique climbs I've done. Climbing next to the second highest waterfall in Western Canada then crawling through a 60m tunnel. 

  • Summit Elevation- 991 ft
  • Named after Bernie Schiesser and Sid Marty- Park warden at the time- Takakkaw is derived from a cree word meaning “It is wonderful”
  • 5.6- 12 pitches- Mixed

Park in the designated parking area for Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park, Follow a paved trail to the base of the waterfall then continue up the short scree approach to the left of the falls. Fairly easy fun climb.
