This will be an interesting and scenic scramble in Spray Lakes area. If you have done Yamnuska or Heart you should have no troubles. Initial part will be the hike towards West Wind Pass; from there we follow the ridge to the summit. There are number of possible variations: If we stick closer to the ridge crest, there is more rock scrambling; most of it can be bypassed on the scree to the left -- When we get to that point we will decide which route would be more suitable for the group.
From the top, we should have nice views of WindTower, the Three Sisters, Spray Lakes and Mt Assiniboine.

-PLEASE DONT SIGN UP IF YOU HAVE TO BE BACK IN TOWN BY A CERTAIN TIME BECAUSE WE WILL MOST LIKELY STOP IN CANMORE FOR A BITE AFTERWARDS.
