Summary

Pockets and very solid rock after the first bout or So. Very European styled and water streaked.

Description

For a Crag with the same amount of time for an approach as a lot of busy others on Grotto mountain, Bataan is certainly a contender for the best limestone in the Bow Valley!! The quality of these water sculpted cliffs are unparalled, with positions high above the scientific valley is magnificent. Bataans vertical to slightly overhanging walls feature many long and sustained routes that are littered with pockets, jugs and edges- endurance is the name of the game. Climbers are slowly realizing the huge potential for the future there, and that the rewards of climbing on pristine blue grey and yellow streaks far outweigh the hike up and crowds.

Access issues

Walk around the mining scar! Do not go onto it- as it is private land.
