This trip is for More Cowbell, a 10 pitch 'alpine sport climb' on Wasootch Peak across from the Nakiska ski area.


Most of the route is in the 5.5 - 5.6 range with one 5.7 crux pitch. This route does have a reputation for loose rock on the upper pitches, though more recent reports seem to suggest it isn't 'that bad' if care is taken. Expect a one hour approach with about 400 m of elevation gain.

Let's get an early start from Calgary - if there's a car already parked at the trailhead we will find another multipitch of similar difficulty to climb.
Required Items to Bring:
Helmet, harness, rock shoes, belay device, 2-3 lockers, personal anchor, warm layers, warm gloves, rain shell, headlamp, food, water

Recommended Items to Bring:
Camera, sunscreen

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:   06:15 AM
