    'Blue Cheese' 15m, WI3+/4

    FA-G.Cornell, Jan.10/09

    Next to impossible to see from the car but a piece of it can be seen with good binoculars and is very low down in elevation deep in the trees. Hike in is 30 minutes max. Can accommodate 2 TR's.

    Drive Smith-Dorien south from Canmore and park at some small boulders along the road a few kilometers before the first bridge. Park here or just ahead at a locked gate. Walk down a road following the powerlines to a building and cross the creek at the last powerline. The creek is about 10ft across and 1/2 foot deep).

    Head straight for the above drainage crossing over two cross-country ski trails. The trees thin out the further you get. Falls are in the constriction of the drainage pouring over a cliff. No visible avi danger.

    Fat, steep wall of beautiful ice. Rap or walk off climber's left.
