Mt. Cline

Elevation: 3361m, 11027ft
Grid Reference: on 83 C/2 Cline River
Location: Just outside the park boundary on the David Thompson Highway. The summit can be seen to the East of Mt. Wilson while descending to the Crossing from Lake Louise.


Ice: Apparently one ice climb was done somewhere on the mountain by an outdoor ed program years ago. Nearby is the Michelle Lakes Waterfall which has only seen a couple of ascents. This waterfall is available for Heli-Ice Guiding by COE guides.

Rock: Some routes have been done on the enormous boulder below Mt. Owen where a good basecamp can be placed for the normal route on Cline.


Southwest Ridge (II 5.4) - The normal route, usually a 2 or 3 day outing but can be done easily in a day. See the new 11000ers book for details.

North Ridge (III WI2 5.3) - See the new 11000ers book for details.

East Face (IV 5.10) - A direct line up the massive East Face. The hardest alpine rock route in the Corridor.
