Louis:

Kain Route (5.8, 15p) or Gmoser Route (5.9, 15p) or 
Kain Route (5.8, 15p)
The original route on Mount Louis, put up in a very casual manner when Kain was accompanying MacCarthy and some friends on a "day's picnic to view the scenery." Begins on the northeast face, traverses by a short rappel onto the southeast face, and finished up a series of corners and ribs directly to the summit. Most of the route is fourth class and easy fifth, with a few very short sections of 5.5 or 5.6.

Gmoser Route (5.9, 15p)
This route climbs the southeast face of the peak, starting on slabs to a prominent corner, and then finishing on the best pitches of the Kain Route to the top. Ths route is one of the best moderate alpine rock routes in the Banff area, the rock is typically clean and reasonably consistent at 5.5-5.6 except for the steep corner system in the lower third.

Homage to the Spider (5.10a, 6p)
This climb ascends a prominent system of corners on the steep face on the east side of the NE ridge of the mountain, offering 6 pitches of steep climbing on some of the best rock found on the mountain. 


The East Ridge is a classic outing and a quintessential moderate ridge route of the Canadian Rockies. It is longer and more difficult than the East Ridge of Edith Cavell. Its "Big Step" start is a real Rockies treat with the hardest climbing on a wall of excellent quartzite. Its modern popularity is in part due to its inclusion in Steck and Roper's Fifty Classic Climbs on North America.


East Ridge (5.7-5.9, 3500')
