INTRO

Castle Mountain is an elongated massif almost 6km long, paralleing the Bow Valley between Banff and Lake Louise. THe faces consist of two tiers of cliffs each about 300m high and separated by a wide scree ledge called The Goat Pleteau. The lower cliffs are formed by resistant Cathedral dolomite, the intermediate scree band is formed of soft Stephen shale, while the upper cliff band is firm Eldon limestone. There is actually a small climber's cabin on Goat Pleateau near the southeast end of the massif, called Castle Mountain Hut.

Super Brewers Buttress, which links Ultra Brewers and Brewers Buttress (which can be climbed as two separate routes, the first ending at Goat Plateau and the latter starting at Goat Plateau) is one of the harder and better routes on Castle Mountain. One of the classic lines of the Canadian Rockies. Super Brewers gives up to 21 pitches of excellent climbing on a natural line that leads directly to the summit of Castle Mountain.
