Mt. Temple is the highest peak in the Lake Louise area. The highest mountain anyone can scramble in the Canadian Rockies.

Difficulty Rating:D6, Difficult to Advanced on September 12, 2009

Started at 8:45 AM

Finished at 7:00 PM

Start of Trail 1863 Meters = 6112 Feet

Mt. Temple Peak 3555 Meters = 11663 Feet

5.5 hours to reach the top

1692 Meters = 5551.18 Feet

4.6 hours to come down

Note: One of our editors had already added Mt. Temple, which you can see here, however, this entry came with better GPS track, pictures, and, a brave soul smoking a cigar at the top (something momentous we hope as opposed to the ritual at every peak). So we allowed this post.

Directions:

Start at Moraine Lake.

By pattunPosted By: pattun  - Mon Sep 06 11:40:55 EDT 2010 Not Rated Upside Looking for a climbing group to Mt Temple for Sep 18. You can contact me at georgnxg@yahoo.com. Pls note Mt Temple is not a hike so if you are new to the rockies you should get Kane's scrambles book and start with easy scrambles like Yamnuska or Burgueau before attempting Mt Temple.
