This thrilling 4-pitch line is truly one of the best around. Macadamia is a classic climb with sustained 5.7/8 climbing and a phenomenal final pitch that is main reason to do the route.
DirectionsThe Ghost. Drive to the Devil’s Gap parking lot. The ghost can be a bumpy (but worthy) off-road adventure in the summer as you drive along the river rocks basin of the Ghost River. Expect 1.5-2hr drive from Canmore. Water x-ings can be challenging during flood periods.
ApproachFrom the Devil’s Gap parking spot, head SW toward Planters Valley and pick up the climber’s trail that take you to the Planters East wall. Roughly 1-1.5 hr. approach by foot.
