Description

Extensively covered in its own chapter of Banff Rock (http://banffrock.ca).

Approach

Access via a climber's trail across the road from a wide pull-out a few hundred metres before the Goat Creek parking lot. In 20-25 minutes, you should arrive at the base of Parallel Dreams/True Grit; follow the trail at the base of the cliffs to access other climbs.

See Banff Rock for further information.

Grade Route

As for true Grit but on pitch 3 take the left line of bolts up an arête. Most of the route has been retrofitted with 8mm ring bolts, and new rap chains. More run out than the average sports route though. Possible to get down on a single 70 m rope with 5 rappels.

Start 100m right of the toe of the buttress, scrambling up Right side of 10 m high square block. Possible to rap up to pitch 8 with double ropes, otherwise walk down tourist route for Mt Rundle. Bolts have replaced most of the piton.

Most pitches are low 5th grade. Much soloing and many variations possible.

There are bolts on harder sections.
