Heart Creek is a popular sport climbing area east of Canmore with most of the climbs located next to a babbling brook. There are 6 or so developed areas and most climbs are about 30 meters with most climbs in the 5.9 - 5.11 range. There are a sprinkling of easier climbs in the 5.6 - 5.8 range and a couple of 5.12's at the end of the canyon. Most climbs can be approached in 10 to 20 minutes of easy walking.
About 15 km east of Canmore and about an hours drive from Calgary. Take the Lac des Arcs exit and goto the Heart Creek Trailhead and follow the signs to the Heart Creek interpretive trail. The sport walls are obvious right off the path as one walks up the trail.
