The new Bow Valley Sport guidebook is available at stores and as an e-book. The first edition of the sport climbing resource for areas from Calgary to Lake Louise was a big hit.
The big bonus with the second edition is you can download the e-book and bring your topos and maps to the crags with you. You can get the print and e-book together for a discounted price.
Author Derek Galloway climbed nearly every pitch in the guidebook, making precise measurements and accurate approach and route descriptions.
This is hands down the best resource for Bow Valley sport climbing available. See areas included here.
From Quickdraw Puclications: The second edition of this full-colour guidebook continues to be the definitive resource for sport climbers traveling to Alberta’s Bow Valley, just west of the city of Calgary.
The Bow Valley is Canada’s premiere summer limestone sport climbing area and includes cliffs around Banff, Canmore and Lake Louise.
All of the newest crags are included in this guide as well as valuable traveling information for climbers coming from abroad. In the heat of summer, this is the best place to sport climb.
