lovely terrain

There's some ice pellets on the trail from a storm last night.
Scramble: 3.5 hrs up. Winston led us up pretty much the whole way; there is a nice easy trail to follow. The weather stayed dry although dark clouds rolled in later in the day. The wind was gusty at the top. We descended the south facing bowl on a good scree run and met the trail lower down. This outing on a tall mountain in the Kananaskis Country was truly enjoyable. This route (via the south-east bowl/ridge) is an easier alternative to  Alan Kane's routes.
