If you find yourself in the Bow Valley for only a few days, or even an afternoon or evening, you can climb good rock a short walk from the road. The outskirts of Canmore offer some of the best-developed sport climbing in the Canadian Rockies, and you can be tying-in minutes from the parking areas. This book is perfect for when you are weathered off the high peaks or are travelling to or from more distant destinations. Grassi Lakes, the East End of Mount Rundle (EEOR) and Ha Ling Peak, along with the accessible amenities of this active mountain town, make for a perfect stopover.
