Amber Mountain is even easier than Signal Mountain to tag "for free" while you're backpacking the Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park. Whereas Signal Mountain requires off trail hiking, Amber Mountain has obvious scree highways right to it's lowly summit right off the main Skyline Trail. It's a no-brainer for peak baggers, but I would never head all the way up there just for this summit. 

 

It could possibly be combined with summits such as Centre and Excelsior which are nearby.
