An exceptional rock buttress at the Base of Mount Sorrow, next to Mount Edith Cavell. This is a quiet area, with exceptional high quality routes on perfect quartzite. The rock is very similiar to back of the lake, or Red Rocks desert climbing as well. You climb mostly on incut features, using cracks or bolts for protection.
From Jasper drive south on the icefields parkway to the Mt. Edith Cavel road turnoff. Drive up the Mt. Edith Cavell road to the parking lot. Approximately 45 minutes.
