trying to plan a trip to Banff next summer for some sport climbing as well as a few mountain scrambles. Can anyone recommend a website or guidebook with this info?

Thanks!

For "Banff" Specifically, the 2 best guide books are Banff Rock (Out of print since the Early 80's and "in the works again for the past 6 years... don't expect it any time soon), and Rocky Mountains South (aka. the Green Bible... also out of print, since the 1970's).

Now as for the next best choices for route information:

Selected Alpine Climbs of the Canadian Rockies

The 11,000ers of the Canadian Rockies

Also Check http://www.tabvar.org for some of the omitted crags, obscure routes, and newer lines. There are lots more that hopefully will be reported/published soon.
