Fun Climb  Sucess!

Busy route...quick access and moderate climbing make this one popular. Had good conditions when we climbed- a couple of pitches of grade 3 with some grade two in the mix.

The Intro to Banff  Sucess!

Climbed Cascade Waterfall in 1992 and 1997. As others have noted, it is better to be ahead of the pack on this one, go early, take a thermos of hot chocolate, enjoy the climb and the view.

beautiful climb

The upper last pitches of the icefall were in poor shape and a large piece had fallen down. Up to there it is easy cruising and a beautiful place

The falls  Sucess!

Beautiful plastic ice on a sunny -30 degree day. Soloed the first half, roped up and finished the route. Some nice vertical here and nice raps down. A couple of idiots on the route, hard to avoid on a strip of ice ten feet wide.

Evening outing  Sucess!

Since we decided to fly out of Calgary the following morning instead, we had some time to kill. Quick ascent of Cascade is just what we were looking for. We decided to wait until the sun was no longer hitting the route due to Avi concerns above.

At 5:30pm, Dane and I headed up. We roped up for the last 3 pitches. Got up in 3 hours and immediately headed down, eventually making it to the at 10pm.

If you haven't climbed Cascade at night, go do it. It's really fun and you get a very different perspective.

Wow  Sucess!

That was a fun climb while basking in the sun! Close to the road, confortable temps, easy descent, a beer and the Banff Mountain Film festival to top off the day. Life is good!

Dow Williams  Sucess!

Great day out with Peter. We soloed up to the last four pitches which were in stellar condition. Had the route to ourselves. I don't recommend climbing below anyone, as some people do on this route.
