About Guides Rock:

A great 6 pitch route and a single pitch 10.c on a very impressive buttress. It is the left hand face visible from the parking lot. A good topo is now posted in the Banff Rock section of Descent is possible in 2 long 60m rappel on Sea of Dreams.
Approach: Parking lot is about 10min past the 1a turn off from banff, you can see the top of guides rock when you are at the pull out. Cross the rd and head up the good trail and switch backs. I find that scrambleing up to the base of the easy slabs below 3 roofs the best.
Approach Time: 30min to climbs
