Description

A large area consisting of a large, tall horseshoe shaped cliff band; a smaller, short cliff band; an extensive boulder field and a long, fragmented band of boulders and short ledges. Some development has happened with a few anchors set on the most promising area on the tall horseshoe section.

Enormous development potential exists. Dozens of new lines waiting to be developed. Some of these lines would likely be 2 pitches, a rarity in this area.

Access issues

Entire cliff is located on general use crown land.

Approach

The crag is just off the "Indian Pass" linking trail (https://www.calabogie.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/manitou-trails-map_web.pdf). Low Wall is easily visible from the hiking trail and from there it is not hard to find the base of the larger Horseshoe cliff.

There are multiple ways to reach the crag but these are likely the two easiest approaches.

  1. Walk in on the Manitou Trails/Shortcut. Approx 25min hike with a moderate incline. Start at Manitou parking area on Barret Chute Road as if you were going to Lake Cliff. When trail crossed an obvious old logging road, take this west until it intersects Wendigo Way. Follow Wendigo Way to the base of the cliff.

  2. Take logging road from Hwy 508 to Manitou Mountain Trail. Follow this trail to Wendigo Way.
