Bident Mountain

Featured photo of Bident Mountain

Bident Mountain is located in Banff National Park near the boundary with Kootenay National Park south of the Lake Louise area. It is situated 3 kilometers east of the Continental Divide with Quadra Mountain to its immediate west and Consolation Pass below its east face. Its position at the south end of the Consolation Valley makes it visible from the road to Moraine Lake; however, as a climbing destination it is rarely visited. The standard route is to follow the trail from Moraine Lake to Consolation Lakes and to Consolation Pass. From the pass, scramble through cliff bands of loose rock on the east face to reach the summit.
