Is it for you?

This is an easy to moderate climbing objective. While some previous experience with exposed scrambling or rock climbing is required, this is a great first trip for those trying to gain basic mountaineering summits and who have a moderate to high level of fitness.

Mount Cline

Rarely visited Mt. Cline boarders the wild White Goat Wilderness Area and is one of only a handful of 11,000 foot peaks east of the Continental Divide. It was one of the last 11,000ers to be climbed in the area and was first summitted by Jimmy Simpson and Rudolph Aemmer in 1927 as they successfully guided a small group. The remote ruggedness of this area along with a beautiful sub alpine lake campsite and views of the David Thompson, Mounts Wilson and Murchison are highlights that will add to the enjoyment of this trip. Although not technically difficult, some exposed climbing makes this an experience to remember! 

Program Agenda

Day 1: We will meet all guests at our office in Canmore at 7:00am MST on the first day.  After issuing food and gear we will pack up and drive north along the Icefields Parkway to the David Thompson Highway.  A 4-5 hour hike brings us to the base where we will set up high camp along the shores of an alpine lake, below the South West Ridge of Mt. Cline and amidst the soaring peaks of the White Goat.  

Day 2: Summit Day!  Today involves moderate scrambling with two short climbing notches to negotiate along a scenic ridge line.  The final summit is gained via snow slopes requiring crampons and an ice axe.  We will return to the campsite for the evening. Approximately 6 hours return.

Day 3: Hike out from our base camp to the trail head and return to Canmore where we can celebrate our adventures.
