Separated from the neighbouring Pinnacle Mountain by a high, airy col, Eiffel peak is a mountain in the limestone and shale range right across the world famous Ten Peaks' Valley. It is also quite close to Mount Temple, the highest non-technical peak in the Canadian Rockies. The entire area is a climbers' and hikers' paradise.
Access to Eiffel Peak is through the Larch Valley trail and then by gaining the obvious ridge which extends SE from the peak. Just park at Morraine Lake and take the trail, and leave the trail about halfway up. Visual orientation is straightforward. Alan Kane's guide to the Rockies has a good description. The main route is a somewhat difficult scramble - orientation is easy but some of the terrain is steep and thus not for the faint of the heart (and is easier ascending than descending). The advantage is that one doesn't have to bushwhack on the approach. Take an ice axe if snow cover persists. This is a classic Canadian Rockies summit at a fraction of the effort required for some of the more remote mountains there.
