Description

Nestled in the Banff National Park of the Canadian Rockies, the Lake Louise area offers an ideal mountaineering environment.

Join me on a full-day single-pitch climbing trip in the stunning Alberta setting.

Established in 1885, the Banff National Park is the oldest in Canada and is home to more than 6,600 square kilometres (2,500 square miles) of majestic mountain terrain.

Standing guard on either side of the glacier-fed Lake Louise are the snow-capped mountains of Mount Temple (3,543m; 11,624ft), Mount Whyte (2,983ft; 9,787ft), and Mount Niblock (2,976m; 9,764ft). This makes Lake Louise home to a number of great climbing routes.

The full-day single-pitch trip can be customised to your own level of ability and experience, and with my knowledge of the area, can create a truly unique itinerary for you.

The hamlet of Lake Louise is named after the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848-1939). Louise was also the wife of John Campbell, Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.

Surrounded by stunning mountain peaks, the hamlet has become a popular place for tourism, especially mountaineers. Yet we will climb above the crowds as we ascend the terrain, soon isolating ourselves in the vase beauty of nature.

Due to the full-day trip being built around your level of ability, there is no set criteria for skill or technique. However, you are expected to have a good level of fitness.

Reserve this Rockies experience and climb the stunning peaks that surround Lake Louise in the Banff National Park.


About the guide

I am an ACMG Rock Guide, I started guiding because I am very passionate about teaching people the technical side of climbing as well as the emotional achievements that come with challenging yourself and connecting with nature.

I have been climbing since I was a kid with my teddy bear clipped to my harness, and since then I have dedicated years to travelling, rock climbing, mountaineering, and improving my technical skills.

I have climbed El Capitan in Yosemite Valley 4 times, sent 5.12 in 5 different countries, and love combining the techniques from rock types around the world. I am also an Industrial Rope Access Technician and enjoy geeking out on the physics of rope systems.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
