Summary

Easier slabs right on the Athabasca River

Description

Easier slab climbs right on the water. Great for beginners, although some routes you must commit to as they require rappel descent to the river.

Access issues inherited from Jasper National Park

Jasper is a National Park, park fees must be paid.

*All Canadian national parks are free for 2017

Approach

Park at the small parking area just east of the second bridge over the Athabasca. If driving from Jasper, you will see the slab on the right as you drive over the river.

From the parking area find the steep path to the top of the slabs and walk along the top of the rock. (5 mins)
