We will be heading out to scramble some of the peaks near Hidden Lake area in Lake Louise. The objective would be bike in to Temple Lodge, hike to the Hidden Lake campground. Hang our overnight backpacks, put on our day packs and head out to climb Mt. Redoubt via the Bob Spirko route. The objective for the next day would be to scramble Mt. Richardson, Pika and if we have energy galore to make it up Ptarmigan Peak. These peaks are all in easy reach from the Hidden Lake Campground. I have not scrambled these peaks so there will be an expectation to have everyone assist in route finding, and decision making. Wilderness permits are required and can be purchased through Parks Canada plus an additional $12.00 payment is required to the trip coordinator to camp at Hidden Lake. Intermediate to advanced scrambling skills with a high fitness level and the ability to be comfortable on difficult terrain will be an asset. If I have not scrambled with you before, please send me an email listing your recent scrambling experience.
