Description

Added by Rayne Grein

This was one of the most unique climbs I've done. Climbing next to the second highest waterfall in Western Canada then crawling through a 60m tunnel. 

  • Summit Elevation- 991 ft
  • Named after Bernie Schiesser and Sid Marty- Park warden at the time- Takakkaw is derived from a cree word meaning “It is wonderful”
  • 5.6- 12 pitches- Mixed

Park in the designated parking area for Takakkaw Falls in Yoho National Park, Follow a paved trail to the base of the waterfall then continue up the short scree approach to the left of the falls. Fairly easy fun climb.

Reviews

A great adventure we camped at Takakkaw in order to be the first ones up. The rock can be a bit loose in some areas but the grade is low so it is manageable. Some spectacular views to be seen from the climb though be prepared to use other forms of communication on pitches close to the roaring rooster tail - you won’t hear a thing from your partner!
