Friday July 05 2013 was a perfect day to escape Calgary (Stampede parade day...) so a group us did what we always try to do when we 'escape' - namely bag a peak! Steven, Wietse, Dave and I would join Kevin, Kelly and Scott along hwy 93 in Kootenay National Park and ascend something there. On the drive up we debated about the original destination - Mount Wardle. We weren't too enthused about a possible 1000 vertical meter bushwhack and subsequently made a decision to tackle the much more pleasant Numa Mountain instead!
