Description

In the wild reaches of the White Goat Wilderness Area stands the rarely visited Mount Cline. It is one of the few 11,000ers to be east of the Continental Divide, and one of the final to be climbed in the area in 1927.

The White Goat Wilderness Area is a designated section of the Canadian Rockies that was established in 1961. Home to rugged mountains, waterfalls, valleys and meadows, the area is also the place where wildlife roam. Moose, deer, bears, coyotes and wolves are just a small number of animals that call the region home.

As we ascend the remote and rugged area we’ll get to view a beautiful alpine lake, as well as mountain views of Wilson and Murchison.

The level of difficulty for this climb is intermediate. Although the climb is not technically difficult, sections of exposed climbing add a slight challenge.

Itinerary

Day 1: Hike to the base

After issuing food and gear we will pack up and drive north along the Icefields Parkway to the David Thompson Highway. We’ll hike for 4-5 hours that will bring us to the base where we will set up camp along the shores of an alpine lake, below the South West Ridge of Mt. Cline and amidst the soaring peaks of the White Goat.

Day 2: Climb to the summit

Today involves moderate scrambling with two short climbing notches to negotiate along a scenic ridge line. The final summit is gained via snow slopes requiring crampons and and an ice axe.

Day 3: Return

Hike out from our base camp to the trail head and return to Canmore.
