From the TransCanada Highway take the exit for the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. Just before you arrive at the hotel there will be a large parking lot on the left. It's best to arrive early as a lot of tourists and locals alike use this parking area for hikes and visiting the the lake.

From the parking lot, walk around to the west side of the lake where the climbs are located. It's a short, easy walk along the edge of the lake to the walls. Lake Louise has everything from 5.6 to 5.14d, so be sure to use a guide book to make sure you don't end up leaving gear behind!
