Mount Temple - Canadian high point

Date walked: 01/08/2019

Time taken: 10.85 hours

Distance: 17.4km

Ascent: 1769m

Our final walk of our Canada '19 trip - a return to Mt Temple! On our last attempt we turned back so close to the top, but exhausted and concerned we would run out of daylight. This time, we left this one to the end of our holiday and climbed several other smaller mountains leading up to it... and we did it no problem at all! 8) :D :D

We were up before the sun :o but it had risen before we reached Larch Valley

Out of the trees, we could see almost to the summit - reassured, as we hadn't brought crampons or axes today (been monitoring weather and other reports for a few days)

Looking back as we head towards Sentinel Pass - less snow in this view this time around

Looking up to the Pass; just a few more switchbacks to go

Helmets on now; lots of loose rocks from here on up

Climb through the first of the rock bands

A friendly marmot (right, centre) takes in the view :D

Back to scree more than scrambling for a little while

Catching breath, admiring the view :)

More scrambling; plenty of good holds
DSC_1262.JPG
Gained a lot of height already

Another moment to stop and pose (catch a breath!)
DSC05438.JPG
Past all the rock bands; steep, loose ground all the way up now

Several folks passed us on the way up; happy with our pacing though, we were going to do it this time!
DSC05441.JPG
Impressive cornices near the top (didn't go too close!)
DSC05442.JPG
Just above those cornices; good view of Moraine Lake from here!
DSC05443.JPG
View behind us; already passed our last visit's return point :)
DSC05449.JPG
Woohoo!! Summit smiles :) Snow meant there was no visible cairn or marker, so we stood on the highest point (careful of staying away from possible cornices)

A still captured from my summit 360 shot shows the small area of snow that is the top :D
We didn't hang around for long! Wind chill had me kicking myself for not taking more layers with me! To start with, travel down was almost as slow as going as it was on the way up :lol:

Downclimbing the second rock band (the trickiest one, but still has good holds)

Heading back towards Larch Valley; plenty of daylight left today!

A friendly chipmunk in the woods :)

Very happy with our stats - our stop time was less than on our last visit! It was definitely a good plan to do more Canadian hikes leading up to this one :)
