Description 

Mt. Rundle looms right over the town of Banff from the south. It has the super-classic moderate, Professor Falls and the infamous Trophy Wall.


Getting There 

Drive south out of Banff to the Banff Springs Hotel Golf Course. This road may be closed in winter, forcing an extra 3-5 km of walking.

If you're there for ice, you should be able to clearly see your flow. A trail to the upper trophy wall may not be beaten. Your best bet may be to get the out-of-print Waterfall Ice Climbs book by Joe Josephson.

Make sure to read the road signs. "Spray Ave" is pretty entertaining.

The Professor Falls WI4  North America : Canada : ... : Professor Falls Area
This is a drainage-style waterfall climb similar to those found in the South Fork by Cody, Wyoming. It is remarkably consistent in its moderate grade.Pitches:1. WI3/4, 40m. A short 85 degree step followed by a less steep bulge to bolted anchors.2. WI3/4, 55m. A short 85 degree step. Keep walking and climb the next WI3 step to more bolts.3. WI3/4. Climb a short step (this should be old news by now). Supposedly there are bolts, but we couldn't find them under the snow and ice.4. WI3. A short step....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
