Mt. Dennis, home to the popular and well-known 'beer routes' stands tall just west of the small community of Field, about 20 km west of Lake Louise on the Trans-Canada Highway. Avalanche hazard must be carefully evaluated before attempting any of the ice or mixed routes on Mt. Dennis.

Getting There 

Routes on Mt. Dennis can be accessed by driving through Field until you find a one-way access road that takes you along the base of the mountain. All routes can be accessed from this road, don't park anywhere else.

The routes can't be seen from the access road, but you can easily check them out from the Emerald Lake turn-off, 2.5 km west of Field on the Trans-Canada.

You won't find a more classic WI5 anywhere in the Rockies! Carlsberg forms up every year and is guaranteed to satisfy. Climb steep ice for 50m to a fixed station on the right. This pitch is usually the crux. A second shorter pitch leads to the top, and a belay/rappel station on the left.A series of short, easy steps can be found above, but are rarely done....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
