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

RouteGradeStyleSelected ascents

Offload at the midway anchor for Rozgrzewka.

5.11b Sport 25m
3 Pump Up the Jam

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

5.11a Sport 25m, 11
4 Jump to The Pump 5.12d Sport
5 Funky Bunch

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

5.10b Sport 13m, 7
6 Fresh Prince

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

5.13a Sport 30m, 17
7 Toxicity

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.

8 Bug's Life

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

5.12b Sport 25m, 10
9 My Two Bits

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

5.12b Sport 25m, 11
10 FFAntom Love

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

5.11d Sport 21m, 12
11 Respected Silence

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

16 Bone Thief 5.12d Sport 23m, 12
17 Buffet Royal P1

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

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)

5.13d Sport 48m
29 Living the Dream

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