Begin the tour being introduced to the equipment, ascend a few pitches, and cross a suspension bridge. Shorter route, good for those with limited time. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift.

Ridgewalker Route (4 hours): Get a greater feel of heights and become a Ridgewalker! This route crosses the suspension bridge and heads up the Norquay cliffs, climbing Memorial, Sol, and Vista buttresses. Includes shuttle from Banff and chair lift.
