Takakkaw Falls Route
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The route starts well left of Takakkaw Falls and eventually, via pitch 8, abuts the falls on the way to the north end of the tunnel. Once you navigate through the tunnel, you will be right at the top of the falls (mist and all) and will have one short pitch left to top out at the Mount Daly glacier melt flow forming the creek that feeds Takakkaw from above. From the parking area for Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park, follow the paved trail past the restrooms and across a bridge following the tourists to the base of the falls. Continue up scree to the left side of the falls and follow the wall left up to the top of the scree cone. The rout starts via broken ledges below a bolt on the right side of the apex of scree. You will see bolts prior to reaching this point, but that is a current (2007) project of sorts.
