Flood Mitigation in Cougar Creek

Posted Nov 28, 2016

There have been some concerns expressed in the climbing community about the construction of flood mitigation structures at Cougar Creek, and the potential impact on climbing in the area.  Currently the Town of Canmore is in the final planning stages of the flood mitigation structure and detailed plans are being developed.  At this stage, our understanding through conversations with Town of Canmore staff, and existing documentation, is that access to climbing areas, and the climbs themselves, will not be impacted.  We will continue to monitor the Canmore Creek flood remediation project.
