The normal route up Mount Temple is a scramble up the SW ridge. Moraine Lake to the summit is 1700m, so you will need to be fit. Expect to summit by mid-afternoon and back to Calgary by early evening. Carpool will be at our Lady of the Assumption School in Bowness and leave at 06:30 sharp to be at Moraine Lake at 08:30ish.

The current forecast is calling for snow Friday night and cold temps the morning of the climb so come prepared with warm clothes, gloves, goretex, etc.

Required Items to Bring:
Lunch, water, rain jacket, good scrambling boots, sun glasses, sun screen, trekking pole(s), light gloves, warm layer, helmet

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   Go to Lake Louise toward the Chateau, then turn left at the Moraine Lake turnoff and go about 11 km to the Moraine Lake parking lot  
Carpool Departure Time:   06:30 AM
Carpool Location:   Assumption School
Carpool Directions:   7311 34th Avenue N.W. Calgary, Alberta T3B 1N5

Rockfall is a significant hazard on this route so be prepared to stick together as a close group during risky sections, and a helmet is mandatory.

4 people are required to do this trip due to park regulations

Carpool contribution should be about $80 per vehicle based on $0.20 per km

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
