Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies Pt. 3-Banff and Yoho National Parks-Difficult

Hike and scramble in the Canadian Rockies  while enjoying some of the finest alpine scenery in the Rockies and North America. There will be 4 parts to this trip: the third part is in Banff and Yoho National Parks, where I plan to bag peaks  in and around around Lake Louise. I'll be camped at the Lake Louise Campground, Site D-1. The hiking is challenging and the days are long. If you are a peak-bagger and this sounds like something you'd enjoy, I'd like some company. Expect hikes/scrambles in the 7-18 mile range with lots of elevation gain on each mountain. A lot of the peaks have established routes and trails, but plan on off-trail hiking too. Interested? Contact me before May 23. You'll need a valid U.S. passport to cross the border.

    The Lake Louise area is a great place to bag some spectacular and challenging mountains. The weather was unusually hot and dry, which unfortunately helped fuel nearby wildfires. The hiking and scrambling was great but the scenery was masked by thick layers of smoke and haze. Would have scrambled up Mt. Temple, the scramabler's prize in the Canadian Rockies, but didn't want to gain 5,000 feet onto the top of a mountain and not get to see much.

    The backside of this area is called Lake O'Hara and the Alpine Club of Canada has a great little cabin for bunk space rent. Yolo PP is also pretty incredible..just watch out for the seasonal outdoor pack rats...I got holy one trip into this area.

      I've got 2 days worth of permits for Lake O'Hara. It's spectacular! Plan to scramble up Fisher Ridge, Litte Odaray, and/or Mt. Yukeness and will attempt side trips along the Alpine Loop and to Lake McDonald.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
