Back of the Lake with Doug & Jacob

Doug & Jacob from California joined me yesterday for a fun day of learning to rock climb & rappel at Back of the Lake in Lake Louise.

It was raining when we left Banff but it soon cleared and we had nice weather for the day in Louise. Despite it being their first time rock climbing, they both did great and managed to climb every route that I set up. We did a variety of types of climbs including cracks, slabs, steep face climbing, and even a couple of small overhangs!

Near the end of the day we went to the Liquid Sky wall and took turns rappelling over the steep cliff below the climbs.

I wish them well with the rest of their visit to Alberta, and hopefully I will have a chance to climb with them again someday!
