The Relentless Boulder and The Prow. Frank Slide, ...


Early in the morning on April 29th, 1903, an enormous chunk of Turtle mountain gave way and slide down over the town of Frank killing at least 75 people and destroying the town. Now, all that remains is a gigantic boulder field with a ton of good bouldering. There are already many problems, but still the possibility for new, hard climbs. The rock is limestone and still pretty fresh and the climbs are good. The area offers a lot of unique climbing from V0-V10 with lowballs and highballs and a lot of fun problems.

Getting There 

Located at the town of Frank, on highway 3, just east of the Crowsnest Pass. To get to the best boulders, go south on 152 st. from Frank. Drive until you see big boulders and a fork in the road.
