Another nice day, +17, after today the temperature goes down, so come and enjoy maybe one of the last warmest day.This hike has you gaining alot of elevation in a short distance and takes you to incredible views of the Kananaskis Lakes
Note about PACE: Coordinator is slower when ascending , MODERATE on descent and gentler grades.If you get bored with this pace pls DO NOT sign up. This is not a "speed demon's hike"...getting to the top in record time nor is it a "very slowpoke hike" If you're at the beginning of the lineup going up and you turn around and the last person is way behind you, then your pace that day is too fast and you need to slow down..one pace while ascending and that is slow.
This area is heavily frequented by Grizzlies which means that we need to stick together and we may have to choose an alternate scramble/hike if there are bear issues in the area. Pls be flexible.
Please note that this is an exploratory trip, therefore time may vary .
