Maligne Range with breath taking landscape
Access: South End of Medicine Lake
Parking: Pull out on the right side (south bound) of Maligne Lake Road
The photos describes this exploratory trip to the infamous natural arch. It is not actually well known to the locals, but the climbing niche is, it is one of their favorites. The climb does not need ropes, so it is rated a scramble, unless you really want to get to the top of the arch itself. A really nice durable pair of gloves is highly recommended.
Steep and rugged terrain is what we found and trail not too apparent as not much traffic ventures this area. Trail is dry, so you will need water if you hike this on a hot day. This was about 8 hours round trip. Highly recommend a mountain guide for this adventure.
Thanks to Mike and Rob for the hike.
