Raven's Crag

24 Sport Climbs

Description: edit

Ravens Crag is home to Banff National Parks best Limestone. The silver and black streaked walls are very high in quality, offering extremely cryptic, powerful and steep climbing. Expect small crimps, pencil pinches, high friction sloppers, gastons, flat holds and sharp jugs.

The first pitches are short because they pack such a punch!! The crag was first envisioned in the 90's by the lord of Sandbagging, Peter Arbic, but in the past year (2016) were all retrofitted with glue in's as seepage can be a concern at this north facing wall. New development is constant here, so please be aware! Bring a jacket as the crag stays chilly even in August. Look out for the Raven who guards over the crag and enjoy, Banff's best sport climbing. Oh, yeah this is home to Canadas hardest climb. ;)
