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.

Getting There 

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.

From the parking pullout, the Panther Falls are accessible by walking to the top of the falls just north of the pullout and rapping down (2 raps). Also, you can walk to the bottom of the falls by following a trail downhill from the Bridal Veil Falls sign and the trash cans. This approach has a bit of avy hazard. Both approaches take about 15 minutes or less.

Panther Falls is an excellent route 1 or 2 pitch route with a very short approach. Not far from the Weeping Wall and Polar Circus just up the Icefields Parkway past the Big Bend.
