Пик Кирке, по-английски Cirque Peak - это небольшая вершина, расположенная в северных средних широтах западного полушария, в точке с координатами 51.7° северной широты, 116.418° западной долготы. С географической точки зрения у вершины следующее расположение: Северная Америка, Скалистые горы, Canadian Rockies. Вершина принадлежит к следующим странам: Канада, провинция Альберта.

Высота горы достаточно точно измерена и составляет две тысячи девятьсот девяносто три метра, или девять тысяч восемьсот девятнадцать футов. Человек не был на вершине горы вплоть до одна тысяча восемьсот девяносто девятого года. Наиболее благоприятные для экспедиции на вершину месяцы это Summer- Scramble; Winter- Ski. Покорение вершины Пик Кирке является несложной с точки зрения спортивного альпинизма задачей. Для успешного восхождения вам скорее всего не потребуются ни кошки, ни сложная страховка, восхождение может быть совершено при любой погоде и практически в любой сезон. В зависимости от плана восхождения и сезона маршруты восхождения могут заметно различаться и, соответственно, вершина такого уровня может быть отличным тренировочным полигоном.

Written by Dow WilliamsCirque Peak is located on the northeast side of the Columbia Icefield Parkway in Banff National Park, one of four connecting national parks located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, between Dolomite Peaks and Observation Peak. Cirque Peak was officially named in 1909 because of a large cirque that lies below its northern cliffs including a small glacier and bergschrund. Cirque Peak was first ascended in 1899 by Nichols, Noyes, Thompson and Weeks.There are two published routes. One is a scramble and the other is a ski ascent, both using similar approaches. The true summit is divided by a notch from the ridge and is the crux of this climb, particularly in the winter.   Like all of its brethren on the east side of the Icefield Parkway, Cirque Peak offers grand views of ice to the west including the Wapta Icefield peaks, Crowfoot Mountain and its hanging glacier. Getting There- The Trans-Canada Highway dissects Banff National Park east to west as you come in from Calgary. Continue past the Banff and Sunshine Ski Resort exits to Lake Louise. Exit onto the Columbia Icefield Parkway. Drive 33kms north from the park kiosk (forced stop to check park driving permit which you should already have). Pull out to the right in the Dolomite Pass-Helen Lake Trail head across from the Crowfoot Glacier view point. I have encountered a black bear crossing the Parkway at Mosquito Creek. This road is probably the most wildlife viewed road in all of North America.  I have witnessed Moose cross the road as well in this area. I advise following the speed limit for that reason.Red Tape- You will be required to purchase a national park pass as you enter the park. This pass is good for all four national parks. If you plan many visits to Canadian National Parks within one year, you should purchase an annual pass. There are no permit requirements to climb in Banff National Park, but all camping is regulated. There is also a backcountry permit required if you plan on spending a night in the backcountry versus the town campsites. This can be obtained via the parks website which is included in the camping section below. Park headquarters are located in Banff and you will drive through the manned kiosks as you enter the park. This is active grizzly country, therefore, you should always have bear spray on your person during non-hibernation months. I advise checking with Parks Canada for any area and/or trail closures.When To Climb- As with most scrambles in the Canadian Rockies, the driest time is from June through September. I climbed Cirque Peak in September and the route had considerable snow at the higher elevations.  There is a published ski mountaineering route up Cirque Peak for the winter months. I did the ski route in February.Camping- The closest camping is located back south a few kilometers at Mosquito Creek Camground located on the west side off of the Columbia Icefields Parkway. You can go on line at Banff National Park to pick your camp site and obtain your camping permit. You will also be required to obtain your backcountry permit, if you are going to use a backcountry site, which is separate, but can be obtained simultaneously.Mountain Conditions-The National Park website has weather, wildlife reports, trail closures, etc. Outsideof the parks web site, Canadian Avalanche Association is also useful, particularlyfor winter travel. Canadian Alpine Accident Reports is also extremely relevant.Detailed route beta and photos can be found at DowClimbing.Com
