I didn't realize there was a time change once I crossed into Alberta from B.C. so I was late meeting Yusuke, my friend who drove up from Calgary to meet me in Banff. Yusuke is the happiest, most positive person I think I know! He's so psyched all the time, and its inspiring! My friend, Marc, introduced us in Squamish, and since I was planning on being in Alberta at some point, I wanted to give him a call. We met at Lake Louise. The lake was picturesque, and inspired me to get in a few more days of climbing here.
The climbing on quartzite was stellar, with beautiful views as you topped out each route. Ah what a joy to climb outdoors. It really is what climbing is all about! We did about 6 routes, mostly 5.11+, and it was super fun. Meeting up with my Alfred tomorrow! Although the forecast isn't looking too good..
