About Cougar Canyon:

Closest crag to canmore. Tons of good routes many different sections
Nearest town or city: Canmore
Directions: Park in the cougar creek community. There's a parking lot just east of the bridge over the creek. The approach is VERY wet in the spring time but it is dry by July. You WILL have to cross the creek, in spring you'll get wet, but after June you can easily manage to stay dry. I'd recomend bringing two pairs of shoes. A pair of hiking boots to walk in with, and a pair of running shoes or sandals to wear when belaying.
