Trip Report

After scrambling Mount Chephren we bivied in the Waterfowl Lakes campground with high hopes to summit Mount Sarbach the following day, August 09, 2009. After waking up at 04:15 we were disappointed when the skies opened up and it began to rain. There would be no attempt on Sarbach this day! We decided to drive to Lake Louise and if the weather was more cooperative there we would attempt something smaller, Sheol Mountain. This would also be my last Kane scramble from the Lake Louise area.

I was up Sheol yesterday. Went straight up the main/left gully which brought me to the 'summit' according to the Gemtreck map....then downclimb some tricky bits to get to the ridge to the east end and the register that is still there from 93. BTW...the cairn you have a foto of is still there. So you foto of vern on the summit is not on the summit :) I did that same thing on castle many moons ago! Have I ever met you? Cheers, Steve Tober

Hey Steve, yeah, I think that should say "Vern on the summit ridge". I'll change that. I don't know if we've met, but I've certainly heard of your feats over the years including your return time on Sunwapta which always amazed me. :)
