Description

Louise Falls is the gem of the area and has the crowds to prove it. Expect company on weekends. The climb is often very wide, making different lines possible. The crux final pillar(s) can be kicked out casual WI4 or dead vertical hard WI5.

Beware of the daggers while on route!

P1-2 70m: Climb up to the center belay cave from the ground in one long pitch if possible. Some folks break this up into two pitches and build a belay in the safest looking spot. Mind the overhead hazard.

P3 30m: The crux. Turn the curtain from the belay cave and head straight up. The top has trees and the casual walkoff.

Location

From the Lake Louise Chateau, the route is obvious at the back right side of the lake. Follow the sled trail around the lake or walk across the frozen lake.

Descent:
Walk off climbers right (usually a donkey trail) and otter slide back down to the base. Very quick. The route can be also be rapped, but with the crowds the walk off is highly encouraged, easier, and safer.
