• Description

    Joy is a very fun and unique climb that follows an incredibly striking right facing dihedral up the Mt. Indefatigable slab for nearly 2000 feet or 606 metres of climbing! Don’t expect any bolts though, as Joy is a pure trad climb that is bolt-free, which is a very special thing around here. The climbing grade is between 5.4-5.8, depending on one’s route finding skills.

  • Directions

    Kananaskis (Peter Lougheed Prov. Park). From Canmore the drive is ≈ 70min or 95km (one-way) to get to the North Interlakes Day Use Area parking lot between the upper and lower Kananaskis Lakes.
  • Approach

    Hike across the dam and follow the main hikers trail that parallels the lake. Then hike up the scree slope below the route. (Roughly 1hr to the base)

  • Descent

    This is a walk-off down the East ridge to the 3rd gully where a scree run leads back to the main hikers trail. Plan to climb the route with your pack.
