stephogood weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2009


Fantastic conditions but smoky from B.C. fires so view wasn't as good as possible. lugged two packs otherwise no difficulties encountered. Since my entire family was very sore from too much hiking we intended to just hike sentinel pass trail but after arriving at the pass in early afternoon my dad decided we could give it a go. 3000 feet of shale and a couple hours later we were on top of Mt Temple with fantastic views.

matterhorn22Three nations summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2008
We met a couple of Romanian climbers, Bruno and Elizabeth at 8:00amfor the ascent, and with two more spaniards at the trail head. The walk up to sentinel pass was pleasant with good views of mountains, marmots and the odd porcupine!! The scree was tedious but little spots of scrambling were fun. Not much snow apart from the summit cornices, massive, unstable and dripping tons of water!! After plenty of time on the summit we descended back to the car by 6pm.

I doubled back from Yoho National Park on my bike tour to climb this peak. Well worth the return trip and tiring bike approach! Eiffel Peak is also good to tag on in a long day.

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2008


After many years of saying that THIS was the year I would climb Temple, I finally got out and did it! Just amazing. The approach, the scramble, and the views were second to none. The weather was perfect but it didn't last beyond this day. (The next morning looked nice, but rain, hail, and lightning turned us back on Paget just by the lookout.)

First 11,000 ft peak for me. Pretty green and poor at the time. Used duct tape and garbage bags to make gaiters. Luckily I wasn't dumb enough at the time to hang out on the cornices.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2008


The route condition is now awesome. There is snow all the way up from the sentinel pass to the top. An early start would make the snow hard and easy ascend and even faster descend, but bring an ice axe! No grizzlies...a lot of people hiking to the sentinel pass, beautiful weather and great fun.
6:30h round trip.

Tried SW face. Did not know route and didn't know where we were going. Mid-way up a guy told us to go to the right of the face and climb long ice-couloir. We tried going on left. Got past grey rock band and ended up a the yellow rock band. My dad didn't want to go any farther because we didn't know where we were. In order to pass we would have to climb class 4 chimney with deadly exposure. Didn't take long for us to get back to the pass and start heading back to the trail head. Some of the best views I have ever seen.

My 150th named summit - I had to save it for a fall day with good weather. We had some of the best views I've ever had in the Rockies with clear blue skies all around!

Did the NF of Temple via Greenwood/Locke Route. Very wild climbing on a big face. It made me very hungry.

Really good weather for climbing the easy route but unfortunately haze impeded the view from the top.

Stopped just short of the main summit via SW ridge due to bad weather (snow, lightening). Fantastic day though. Wanted to do this since I was a kid living in Lake Louise. I'll be back to try the east ridge someday!

EricKRoute Climbed: via sentinel pass Date Climbed: July 27, 2005  Sucess!


What incredible weather! We had bright sunshine and perfect temperatures the whole way up. The scrambling was phenomenal...not nearly as difficult as we were expecting, but it was obviously quite physically demanding. We took 9 hours and 42 minutes from car to car, with 50 minutes spent on top, taking in the incredible view in the +18ºC temperatures with no wind. I definitely wouldn't mind doing this scramble again.

Weather was perfect, sunny and calm throughout the day. The longest hike I have done but the view from the top was exceptional and definately made the effort worth it. Still quite a bit of snow left on the ridge and made for some fun sliding down. Actually, sliding down on a plastic bag was the best part of my day on that trip.
