Cirque Peak

What a day! We dragged the kids all the way to Helen Lake! Actually they did very amazing. KC must have hiked about 4km in and 1000ft of height gain and Niko went about 700ft of gain and 3km in.

Pigeon Mountain

I woke up on a lovely morning in February and decided that work could wait. I was going to bag a peak and that was the end of it!

Signal Mountain

Signal Mountain is easily done off the Skyline Trail backpacking route in Jasper National Park.

Curator Mountain

Curator Mountain was a very enjoyable scramble. Next to Tekarra it’s the one I would recommend most for a side trip off of the Skyline Trail backpacking route in Jasper National Park.

Amber Mountain

Amber Mountain is even easier than Signal Mountain to tag “for free” while you’re backpacking the Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park.

Antler Ridge

I call the summit on the ridge that connects to Antler Mountain ‘Antler Ridge’. We climbed up this ridge from the Snowbowl campground along the Skyline Trail in Jasper National park.

Skyline Trail – Jasper National Park

With over 1400 meters of height gain and 1900 meters of height loss, the Skyline Trail is a lot of work. But it’s worth it. Add a few peaks and soon you’re doing over 2200 meters of height gain, but again, it’s worth it!

Whaleback Mountain

In order to salvage the day, we hiked along Whaleback Mountain, descending its eastern nose before looping back to the Stanley Mitchell hut on the main approach trail.

Ha Ling Peak

In the spring of 1999 we went with a group from the office. At the time I thought that this was one of the only peaks that you could do without ropes and climbing gear.
