Perched next to the beautiful, aqua-marine waters of Lake Louise is what is considered the to be the crown jewel of Bow Valley sport climbing.
Bulletproof walls of purple and orange quartzite frame the lakes' distant shores and are littered with near perfect holds, ranging in size from half-pad crimpers to jugs that may swallow your entire hands. The climbing on these sheer faces is both physical and technical.
It is expected to be sunny with a high of 12 so lets head down there and get some climbs.
I have set the limit to 6 people because I only have 2 ropes and gear for one or two routes, I will increase the limit if more people join with ropes and gear. I may change the location if the weather doesn't co-operate.
