John Laurie Mountain (Yamnuska)

elevation: 2,240 m. height gain: 900 m.
area: Exshaw,AB map 82 O/3

Ref: Alan Kane's Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies

Scramble: RT 5.0. Hiking in boot-top, light snow. Very windy and overcast. We used the west ridge up and down. It is a short plod to the summit after reaching the col, where Fab turned around with the pup. The scree below the face sucked even with snow!
