Panther Falls is an excellent single (long) pitch ice climb with at least two variations that regularly form. Both go at about WI4. We climbed it in late April 2011 and it was really running with water on the right side while the left side was in decent shape.
The LARGE pullout is along the Icefields Parkway (the 93 N, past Lake Louise) at the Bridal Veil Falls viewpoint. This pullout is about 9 km south of the Banff-Jasper park boundary at the Sunwapta Pass. If heading North (i.e. from Calgary) it is right up the hill right past the Big Bend, which is a big, super obvious curve past Polar Circus and the Weeping Wall. About 3.5 hours from Calgary.
