Description

This is premier crag of the Bow Valley. Many test pieces. It is constantly changing and evolving so keep up to date here as all the guides books are useless now with so much new construction http://www.tabvar.org/node/242.

Approach

1.30hr but worth it. Best limestone in the Valley

Grade Route

Offload at the midway anchor for Rozgrzewka.

A technical start to a hard to read roof encounter where you'll find the crux. Easy climbing above! Not an ideal warm up

A pretty strange route (you'll see)! Feels contrived. The only 5.10 at Atlantis wall

FA: Marc A

One of the best 13a's in the Rockies.

FA: Aaron P

Was 13a by the first ascent team, but was downgraded for poor reasons...cough*

Start on Bug’s life but Veer left at the rest. Multiple powerful and pumpy 5.12 moves all the way to the anchor.

FA: Derrk Galloway & Gery Un

An intro, short-lived boulder-problem, gains a no hands. Pumpy climbing to a long v4 Boulder up top. Claw to the chains!

FA: Aaron P, 2010

Lots of talk has been thrown around about this being the best 12B in the Bow. Lots of cruxes and a super pumpy ending! Mega classic

One of the best 5.11's in the Bow Valley lives here. Enjoy 6 mini 5.11 cruxes on route to the anchor with every single style of climbing. And yes the large roof is as pumpy as you imagine!

FA: Greg Tos

A bouldery v5 start, gets ready to attack the duelling sidepull rails. Tons of compression and a great short route for boulderers.

FA: Greg Tos

Either hate it or love it. A Powerful little fella!

The route that started it all.

A super funky sequence into the huge corner and a big move out gets the pump going. Pumpy climbing above with a last hard move before the anchors. Classic

Bow Valley Sport guide shows an anchor lower on this line, Runaway Lane 11d. It has been removed.

The dramatic looking fin coming out of the cave ledge. The crux comes down low but the rest is no gimmie. Classic for the grade (13c to first anchor)

A steep start with powerful pulls gains a hard bulge and a rest. Recover and crank the technical crux that guards the chains.

FA: Greg tos

Romancing the Stone ext proj.(If you have climbed all the other lines on the wall you can give it a try, probably 13b or c, I might get around to it this year)
