Mount Cory is classed in Alan Kane’s book as an easy/moderate scramble via south ridge. We will scramble up the S ridge to the S summit, continue on to the N summit, and then return the same way. If we can, we will stop for a peak in the "Hole in the Wall" on the way up. Please be realistic about your abilities and gauge them appropriately, as you will need basic scrambling skills. Also, please note the list of required equipment. In particular, everyone must bring a climbing helmet and proper hiking boots.

Please do not be in a rush to get back to town as we may stop in Canmore for a bite/drink.

Required Items to Bring:
- climbing helmet (mandatory)
- sturdy hiking boots (mandatory)
- clothing for variable weather conditions (no cotton)
- plenty of water and food
- plastic bag for muddy boots
