This scramble is always a classic, at about 11km and 900m elevation gain. This time I had the pleasure of bringing along a few people who were new to scrambling, to show them that the easier ones really aren’t that bad. Our whole group had no problems with the cable crossing, and everyone loved the scree run at the end! Here’s me coming down the scree slope.
The summit was very busy as it was the Canada Day long weekend, and we actually bumped into another group from the Calgary Outdoor Club – it was very interesting to see what a different mix of people they had from CORA. Seemed like a much younger group.
In summary, this scramble is a very good way to get yourself used to the steep slopes, scree, and exposure to falls that harder scrambles are full of. Highly recommended!
