About Bearspirit:

There are two steep pillars, left, and centre(W4's), with a shorter lower angled flow to the right(W3). They are collectively known as Bearspirit. Later in the season they may form a curtain. There are also a number of mixed routes here.
Nearest town or city: Banff
Directions: Park at the Fireside parking area, then follow the gated road a short way. Turn left into the drainage coming from the Cory/Edith Pass. Look for a trail up a gulley to the left approximately 30 mins from the car. Follow the gulley trail another 10 mins, up a low angled ice slope, scramble through a bit of a notch, then up a rocky/snowy trail to the base of the ice.
