Escargo Corner, Mt Norquay

Escargo corner

Escargo is a six pitch, 5.8 natural gear route up a superb corner where you will actually climb on fossilized snails in the rock.

The route is a 5 min drive from Banff town site located on Mt Norquay's west side and takes about 1.5 hours to hike up to the base of the route.

A full day out with interesting climbing.

The descent is a few rappels off the top then down climbing a rib, back to the ascent trail.
