Itinerary: 

Meet at the trailhead for the crag at 9:30am each day.

Friday August 19: Lake Louise (Planning to use the shuttle from Lake Louise Ski Resort to the lake to avoid the parking lot. Instructions and link to booking here: https://www.banfflakelouise.com/explorethepark/lake-louise-moraine-summer-shuttle . I am planning to book the 8am-9am timeslot.)

Saturday August 20: Carrot Creek (or Echo Canyon or Bataan?)

Decided on Lake Louise for Friday the 19th, but open to other ideas for Saturday and Sunday if anyone wants to propose alternate crags.
