Trip Report

Nothing to this one. Do it as part of a trip up Fairview Mountain and get two peaks in one day. It only took me 23 minutes to go up, take pictures and descend back to Saddleback Pass so it's worth doing. Good views of the Bow Valley and Castle Mountain.

[One of the shortest scrambles I've done but also one of the nicest summit cairns.]
