Crypt Lake Hike, Canada

Instagram photos and videos at Crypt Lake Hike, Canada

Today was so magical. Get outside and earn your views. 24k round trip, shale switchbacks for miles, straight incline, and wire cables as your only option to hug the mountain tightly. What a day. Looking forward to the next 10 days of outdoors & so stoked to have Crypt off the bucket list πŸ™πŸΌπŸŒΏπŸŒ²πŸŒ±πŸŒžπŸ”πŸƒπŸΌ‍♀️
Sick hike with my girl @b_horbs #33000steps πŸ€™πŸΌ
11 mile hike to Crypt Lake. Pretty rad. I'd love some Taco Bell though. #bigworldsmallme #canada #cryptlake
I can do hard things πŸ’™
Jumped into a lake of glacier water at the top of our 16km hikeπŸ§—πŸΌ‍β™€οΈπŸŒŠβ˜€οΈ
Awesome views !
Some more from today's adventure with @stryde.performance. The day started off with an early drive to the national park. After buying tickets ($26 return) to the boat to crypt landing, we geared up and caught the ferry to the dock on the east side of the lower Waterton lake. Crypt Lake trail heads southwards towards the USA border along the east side of the valley floor, passing by Twin falls and Hell Roaring Canyon, before emerging into a more exposed section of trail which climbs gradually to a steel ladder fixed to the cliff side. The ladder gives climbers access to a 60 foot long natural tunnel that emerges onto an exposed cliff face. With the assistance of a steel cable, we traversed the cliffs and arrived at Crypt Lake itself. After a short visit at the lake we headed back down the Crypt Lake trail for about two kilometers and turned west, crossing the valley, the stream  and bush-whacking for about 20 minutes. We eventually started to climb the. eastern slopes of Mount Boswell, but finding ourselves a little further south of the best route to the summit we  had to traverse southward until we made the false summit and ridge. We spent about 30 minutes at the summit before descending the steep and somewhat sketchified scree slopes back towards the valley floor and on to crypt lake trail. We got back to the dock at 4pm and waited for the next boat! Mount Boswell is not an easy climb because of the difficulty in finding a decent pathway up the mountain and safely back down. Experienced hikers only! Post run pizza was incredible.  Awesome adventure.  Bring lots of water. We both ran out and drank from an alpine stream.  #altra #watertonlakesnationalpark #2xucompression
Crypt Lake was as sweet as the ice cream I’m reviving my body with
Just want to thank everyone again for all the birthday wishes! Hoping for another adventure filled year πŸ™Œ #23
Last year we came to Waterton and heard about this hike and put it on our bucket list. Today we did it together. 11 miles, several beautiful falls 2500 feet of elevation gain and my favorite part....the steel ladder and the cable on the very edge of a cliff!! So glad I shared this with my best friend today @pappabuck πŸ˜“πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜˜β€οΈ
Exhausting, exciting, exquisite. My favourite hike so far 🍁
Fantastisk smuk og lidt grænseoverskridende tur i Crypt Lake πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸŒŽ. ... #hiking #canada #cryptlake

Crypt Lake 🐿
Crypt lake Hike was voted top 20 in the world by Nat Geo in 2014/17. If you don’t mind walking for 6+ hours, watching waterfalls, beautiful canyons, climbing ladders, crawling through a tunnel and going for a swim in a lake...you might want to consider a different hike. πŸ˜‚
had a bearfect first hike in Canada! 🐻 #blackbear #canada #waterton #cryptlakehike

Lovely little hike in the heat for my birthday in August. If you look closely you can see Susans soul trying to escape...she was not having the best time. +30 hikes are not her thing apparently but she soldiered on. Proud of my girl.
throwback to warmer days, hanging out by a lake on the top of a mountain πŸ—»β€
1. My fanny pack is the best purchase I’ve made all year 2. My husband looks sexy af with a beard 3. My cousin is going to kill me for saying af because she thinks it’s annoyingπŸ˜‚ 4.

7 hours! We βœ… done , what better way to cool off in #watertonlake #cryptlake hike was totally epic !  27’ it was a hot hike
Hectic hike through snow in September! Involved 3 waterfalls, two creek crossings, walking through a cave tunnel, and scaling along the edge of a cliff using a cable. All in all, a top day :)
Here she iiiiisss, Miss Waterton!

My legs turn to jelly when i saw the rock climbing which is holding onto sturdy cable anchored to the rock, a small ladder to the tunnel about 25 meters long. Once we’ve done that we reached up to the crypt lake, the end of lake is the border between Canada and USA. Somehow i made it !!! . . #canada #lovecanada #alberta #britishcolumbia #calgaryblogger #vancouverblogger #montrealblogger #torontoblogger #fashionblogger #fashiongram #vacouverfashion #calgaryfashion #montrealfashion #torontofashion #canadianfashion #chinesefashion #koreanfashion #ootd #endorsement #endorsemodel #endorsementpicture #shoutout #shoutoutfit #shoutouter #shoutoutpage #cryptlake #cryptlaketrail #hiking #hikingadventures

It’s time for a comPUNtition! *Read Pun Contest Details & A Giveaway Below* β € As you might be aware, I enjoy a few cringe-worthy chuckles of dad-joke flavoured lines here and there. I’ve decided to giveaway the coffee beans I got while I was in Africa as a prize to the winner with the best pun for this photo! β €  The prize: An organic, non-GMO coffee bean bag hand-picked by the local farmers from the base of the biggest mountain in Africa (Kilimanjaro). I didn’t buy it from a store, we got it directly from a @Braventure connection with a local farmer. If you like coffee and puns this one is especially for you! β € Contest steps: β €  1. Comment on this photo with your puns (you can submit as many as you like). It’s a photo of Ben drinking out of a @Lifestraw in a stream up in Waterton β €  2. I will give each comment with a ‘palm-face rating’🀦🏽‍♂️ out of 5. The more palmface 🀦🏽‍β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ½‍β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ½‍♂️ you get the better chance you get selected to the top 2 β € 3. Top 2 will be selected sometime next week and the winner will be selected based on poll voting on InstaStory β €  Cool beans? Go wild and have pun! . . . #pun #contest #compuntition #dadjokes #yyc #travel #hike #river #stream #lifestraw #nature

20km, 1,000m in elevation gain, 3300 calories, and 7 hours but this view was worth it. πŸ—»
Knocked one off the bucket list. If this was my hiking crew for the rest of my days on this earth. I would be more than pleased. So glad to have been able to spend this day with you all, wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thanks for a great day of laughs and amazing pics. @carronlynsay @carreradawn @sarahp_summitqueen @indragramm @sabrinalayne @cathy_blouin #teamabstinence #teamgreatbutts #hiking #waterton #nationalparks #cryptlake #mountains #yyc #pecgoals
