Easy, short scramble. Due to the early season, there are no known Kananaskis avalanche reports at this time in Kananaskis, however, considering early snowfall, we will proceed with caution.

READ THE WRITE-UP'S BELOW.

Please Note: All participants MUST bring HELMET, MICRO SPIKES, MOUNTAIN AXE, SNOWSHOES.

We'll be going at a moderate pace. You are expected to have hiked/scrambled the distance and the elevation in the past 2 months.

The coordinator has not done this trip before so route finding might be possible.
