About Mt.Louis:

This amazing spire about an hour hike in on a good trail has a climbing history dating back to the beginning of the 1900's when guide Conrad Kain first led a group to the summit, now a 5.7 route known as the Kain Route. There are about 6 other long trad lines and a rumored alpine-sport route on the Diamond Face or the east face.
