Description

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.

Ended up booking a one-night-and-one-day hike summiting Mt Shasta because Mt Rainier was booked out.

I really loved it. Intro to rock climbing was an amazing experience. Explore-share team were so helpful in the process. The trip that I chose in the first place was not available and they managed to find alternatives and offer me the best possible solution in that situation. In the end I had a wonderful day and could not be happier!

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.

It would have been helpful to know it was suppose to be a Matterhorn prep course. The goals of the group were a little different.

I was very glad to have the Back country ski tour in Montata by following reasons. 1. I had quick replies from my coordinator and guide whenever I asked something; 2. My guide was cool. 3. The tour was well-planned and appropriate duration. 4. Snow was in a good condition. Thank you!!

Poor service from Explore-share! The vendor who provided the actual tour shared with Explore-share that heavy rains prevented them from doing a substantial section of the tour. I was not notified. The vendor also offered a substantial discount for what we were able to do and this was not shared with me either!

Neil was our guide and he was amazing! We did Camelback mountain climbing and he knew all about it and the other nearby mountains. Lots of great info and fun. I took my two boys, 9 and 11 years old plus climbed myself (44 years old). So perfect for all ages and skill levels. Definitely worth doing!!!

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!
