Mt. Rundle is a mountain in Canada's Banff National Park overlooking the towns of Banff and Canmore, Alberta. The easiest route up Mt. Rundle ascends the gently sloping SW, right-hand profile of the mountain, as viewed from Banff. This is a non-technical climb if on the correct route and in the right season. Aside from sturdy hiking boots, no special climbing gear is required. Most of the route to the summit entails very steep, strenuous hiking. On much of the climb, the sloped footing can be awkward and tiresome and can be very slippery in wet conditions. The standard route is traightforward, but there are several places where mistakes can lead to disaster.
