After climbing Takakkaw Falls (normal route).


At 1260', Takakkaw Falls is the 2nd highest waterfall in western Canada.

Getting There 

If traveling from the East (i.e. Calgary, Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise) take the Trans Canada highway 22 km past the Lake Louise exit and take a right turn onto Yoho Valley Road. Follow the signs to Takakkaw Falls.

This road is closed in the winter, but can be skied all the way to the parking area to climb Takakkaw Falls proper as an ice climb in the winter.
