Scramble Peaks

These are easy mountain climbs that may be accomplished by anyone with some physical fitness and a sense of adventure! Expect an 8-12 hour day with some easy rock scrambling where your guide will protect you with the rope.


 

On the summit of Mt Temple

MT TEMPLE

The Lake Louise classic! This is the longest scramble we offer but so worth it. We begin at Moraine Lake and take the Larch Valley trail to Sentinel Pass. From there we tackle the peak via a steep hike on a rougher trail with some very short rock climbing sections. We finish on top of the highest peak in the area, with incredible views in all directions. 

 

The view from Mt Norquay

Mt Norquay

This peak lies directly above the town of Banff and has extensive views over the Bow Valley. A walk through the forest gets us to the base of the south ridge. Some easy rock cliffs lead to a steeper section where we have the option to climb either a pitch of 4th class or a 5.6. Then it is an easy ridge walk to the summit.

 

A view of the Lake Louise peaks

Mt Niblock

This is the easiest peak we offer. It is above Lake Louise and offers fantastic views of the area. A trail walk gets us to the Lake Agnes Teahouse. Then rougher walking and a few small cliffs leads to the final ridge.
