Mt. Louis and The Castle

Rock stone on the Icefields Parkway

In an effort to prepare for the ACMG Full Alpine Exam at the end of the summer, I've been spending most of my free time lately checking out classic Bow Valley objectives. If you'd like more beta on any of these routes, please send me $100 cash and I'll make sure to get back to you with move by move accounts of climbs like The Kain Route on Louis and Super Brewers on Castle.

Mighty Mt. Louis

Tim A has probably climbed, guided and rescued people from Mt. Louis more than any other sentient being.

Pumping laps on Mt. Athabasca

After taking approximately 2 billion photos of people walking up Mt. Athabasca, I decided to turn my lens elsewhere.

Almost looks like the slithery skin of a python.

Speaking of slithering, here we have Ben F on Ultra Brewers, Castle Mountain.

Lydia M at yet another belay on Brewers Buttress.

Tears of joy on top of Castle.
