2008-08-17 Mistaya Mountain & Nearby Lakes
Aug 17, 2008

Woke up early and decided to go get some sunrise photos at Moraine Lake. The sunrise was a little disappointing but I stopped by Herbert and Bow Lake for some nice reflections. The rest of the day I spent scrambling to the summit of Mistaya Mountain. The scramble involved navigating a glacier and a lot of loose rock. Not one I'd do again, but the views from the summit were well worth while. Caldron Lake looked great as always.

2008-08-04 Dolomite Peak
Aug 4, 2008

A beautiful day spent scrambling to the summit of Dolomite Peak with Renee. A few pesky mosquitoes on the way up. Seeing some bear prints in the sand near the gully made things a little more exciting. Once on the summit we chilled for a while taking in the views and enjoying our lunch. We had this terrific mountain all to ourselves. Which is good considering how back rock fall can be scrambling up through the gully.

2008-08-03 Wasootch Ridge
Aug 3, 2008

A hike/scramble with the Calgary Outdoor Club. Not to be confused with Wasootch Peak which is a separate mountain. This is mostly a hike until the very end. To reach the summit one can follow the ridge exclusively, coming to a difficult 5m downclimb, perhaps a 5.5, 5.6. The downclimb can be avoided by following a path to the right of the ridge and regaining it through the first gully.

2008-07-26 Commonwealth Peak
Jul 26, 2008

A scramble with Paulo and Ian to Commonwealth Peak. The marsh crossing was worse than I expected, using sandals. Mosquitoes were pretty bad. Some brutal bush whacking on the way up and near the top we took the wrong route, making it much more difficult. On the way down it was much easier. We built a cairn marking the right gully up and found a much easier route through the trees on the west side of the avalanche gully. The marsh crossing was much easier too just with scrambling boots.

2008-07-13 Rawson Lake Ridge
Jul 13, 2008

A hike to Rawson Lake Ridge with the Calgary Outdoor Club. We made it to the ridge where the group sat down to have a snack and enjoy the view while I went to try and scramble to the ridge summit. A couple of moderate scrambling steps and I was able to get to the top.

2008-07-12 Mount Indefatigable
Jul 12, 2008

A north to south traverse of Mount Indefatigable with the Calgary Outdoor Club. We stayed together as a group, as this is an area that grizzlies often frequent. To my surprise there were a ton of people on the trail making it unlikely to run into a bear.

2008-07-06 Cirque Peak
Jul 6, 2008

A scramble with the Calgary Outdoor Club. We originally planned to do Eiffel Peak but changed because of snow. Cirque Peak turned out to be a great choice, as the early morning cloudy period entertained us by sending clouds through the valley. On the way down we stopped at the lake where we watched marmots fighting each other, seemingly oblivious to our presence.

2008-07-05 Mount Chester

2008-06-30 Mount Crandell
Jun 30, 2008

Scrambling Mount Crandell with Renee and Kyle in Waterton Lakes National Park. A great scramble! Many routes that could get an eager scrambler in trouble. We followed the ledges to the left eventually scrambling up to a jagged ridge which had a lot of good route finding and scrambling. We ended the day at the lake where Kyle showed off his slacklining skills.

2008-06-28 Babel St Piran & Devils Thumb
Jun 28, 2008

I woke up at 3:00am and drove out to Moraine Lake for the sunrise. After I climbed up the nearby Tower of Babel and slept on the summit until 9:00am. Then it was off to Lake Louise to join the Calgary Outdoor Club for a scramble up Mount St. Piran and Devil's Thumb. A long day.

2008-03-14 Kananaskis Peak
Mar 14, 2008

A scramble up to the peak at GR338442 and a traverse to Kananaskis Peak. The weather was really amazing considering the forecast called for 5-10 cm of snow. The bushwhacking was horrible and the often waist deep crusty snow made for a very slow trip up.

2008-03-09 Heart Mountain & Twin Towers
Mar 9, 2008

A scramble up Heart Mountain and the Twin Towers with the Calgary Outdoor Club. We went at a pretty good pace and tackled the downclimb without much of a problem. To find the downclimb, once you hit the drop off skirt around to your right (west) to find the easiest spot.

2008-02-10 Old Baldy
Feb 10, 2008

Mike and I decided to head out and climb something. Mostly I just wanted to get out of the tree line. The weather was pretty good but there was a ton of snow. Bushwhacking with snow on average up to the knees was not that fun and we gave up 200 meters below the summit.
