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!
Nice route, nailed it in perfect weather with Dow. Met Courtney at the summit within 5 minutes which was incredible and hiked out together. Great day
A slog...with great views! Met up with Dow and Peter on the summit, then hiked out together. Good times.
Woohoo! A long slog but worth it...the views are mind blowing! I might have to go back just to see it again.
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!
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.
Smoky (bad fires set in this summer) day for me, but best views included a real good study of Fay and her glacier, Hungabee, Eiffel, The Mitre, Lefroy and Victoria. No snow to deal with this July. Be sure not to circumvent the mountain too far to the SE. Serious accident report on that mistake. In other words, keep moving up, staying on good trail. Cheers.
i reached the top of Mount Temple with my friends Marzio and Gianni in the august of 2000.
The day started rather inauspiciously in atrocious weather. Fortunately, by the time we reached Sentinel Pass it had become dry and sunny and we were able to continue all the way to the summit.
A great scramble, long but straightforward (going down was painful though!). If ever I'm back in the area this is definitely one I'll do again.
Great climb, a little of everything. Route-finding is the crux, for sure. Made it up the E-Ridge before doing the tourist route!
Alot of snow on the terraces - we set off many point release avalanches.
Partner dislocated his shoulder on loose rock in the black towers.
I've had better days!
If you like it loose, you will like this a lot. The final snow ridge almost made the scramble/climb through crumbling limestone that was the first 80 percent of the climb worth while. Wear a helmet.
I've been up three times. I think I can manage it a few more. Details at http://www.canadasmountains.com
Easy scramble to the top. Nothing else to say about it. More a hike then a climb!
Very straightforward scramble given the height. Ice in the gully through the first rockband made things interesting. Some snow/ice on the summit ridge. Highly recommend an ice axe. Dress warm!
Brilliant views and great company. We ascended as a group of ten deskjob misfits and smiled all the way home.
