Re: Damn!

Aaron, that is the Gmoser Route you are looking at, my favorite pure Alpine Rock Route in the parks. The neatest aspect though is the summit log, like a whos who of Canadian Mountaineering...most old logs are taken down and handed over to my friends at the Banff Museum. But everybody has left this old log alone and it is kept well protected. It alone is worth the effort. Finally some sun! Out to the rocks, cheers.

Re: Great shot

Thanks Ray. Mt. Louis is Banff's best pure rock peak. I have been up four different routes to its summit. Homage to the Spider is by far the best and most adventurous line. Cheers.
