Located in the Sawback range of the mighty Rockies in the Canadian province of Alberta is the beautiful Mount Louis (2,682m). And on this full day trip, we would like to guide you to the top of this amazing peak by way of the Kain route.

When it comes to climbing the limestone spire of Mount Louis, there are no easy routes. All of the paths to the top are challenging, full of rugged terrain and several exposed spots, it takes a strong constitution to conquer this peak. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. You should also have some prior rock climbing experience as well. However, the views you will get at the top, views that stretch well into the renowned Banff national park, are nothing short of astounding.

Like all rock climbing expeditions, scaling the spire of Mount Louis along the Kain route requires endurance and concentration. Moreover, our guides will see to it that you are properly and safely guided throughout the endeavor. Hence ensuring that your climb is fun, safe and successful.

Well known for its incredible and vast stretches of natural beauty, the Canadian Rockies are a dream come true for those who adore the outdoors. It is also a fantastic escape for adventurers as well. And that is why we believe this day long climb of Mount Louis is a can’t miss trip.

If you would like to enjoy this ascent, just send us a request. We look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

We also lead a 3 day climbing adventure up the northeast ridge of the glorious Bugaboo spire.

Great guides and great snow!



Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
