National Park! MORE INFO >>>


Steep technical single pitch limestone sport climbing in an incredible canyon. The constant roar of the creek can make communication difficult, but it also acts as an air conditioner on hot days. Water levels can be an access issue during spring melt, but at other times of the year, this is area is well worth a visit.

Getting There 

Drive up the Maligne road until you get to the first Medicine Lake viewpoint. Park here and walk along the right side of the lake (opposite side from the road) until you reach watchtower creek. Head up the creek picking up a trail. 30-45 minutes from the car.
