Burke, Mount

On Friday March 09 2007 Wietse and I decided that we’d had enough of winter and set out for the Livingstone area to bag some peaks. We decided to try Mount Burke on the Friday and give Raspberry Ridge and Gunnery Peak a shot on Saturday.

Paget Peak

On Saturday, February 10 I finally bagged my first summit of the year 2007 and first summit since October 14 2006. That’s almost 4 months without a summit. No wonder it felt so good. 😉

Putnik, Mount

Jon and I woke up around 06:00 on Friday morning and set off for Mount Putnik to the northeast of our camp. I had done a lot of thinking on the route and had come to the conclusion that if we got lucky we should be able to bag the summit from the Three Isle Lake campground.

McHarg, Mount & Worthington

On the third day we got up early and continued up and across Northover Ridge before descending into the Three Isle Creek valley towards Three Isle Lake. On the way we decided to bag McHarg and Worthington.

Northover, Mount

All day Jon and I had been glancing nervously (and somewhat excitedly) at Mount Northover looming ominously to the north and west. We had originally planned on climbing it the next day after backpacking to Northover Pass, via the alternate descent route.

Warrior Mountain & Mount Cordonnier

We woke up in the Aster Lake campground on the morning of Wednesday, September 6th to another very clear and very smoky day. Our plans included ascents of both Warrior and Cordonnier and possibly adding a third summit – Mount Northover.

Iceline Trail, The (Stanley Mitchell ACC Hut, Little Yoho Valley)

It all started with Linda Breton planning a group trip to the Stanley Mitchell hut in hopes of having a more successful outing than the group trip last year.

Opal Ridge North

Opal Ridge North is not a grand objective by any means. As a matter of fact, in my research to see how far up the ridge I should go to ‘officially’ nab the north summit I couldn’t find two accounts that gave the same idea of the summit.

Grizzly Peak

Wow. Who would’ve thought that I’d be bagging my first scramble of the year only 6 days into it?! OK – it’s not like Grizzly Peak is such a hard or worthy adversary but for a winter scramble it does very nicely thank you.

Redoubt Mountain

The only Kane scramble in the Skoki that was left after 3 days of scrambling was Redoubt Mountain. Jon, Rod and I packed up our camp at Baker Lake early on Thursday morning, September 8 2005 to head for Boulder Pass.

Black Rock Mountain (Blackrock)

Summit Elevation (m): 2462 Trip Date: Friday, April 15, 2005 Round Trip Time (hr): unknown Elevation Gain (m): 920 Total Trip Distance (km): 8 Quick ‘n Dirty Rating: Class 2 – you fall, you sprain something Difficulty Notes: Easy scrambling on a good trail. The hardest part might be driving to the trailhead. Technical Rating: OT4; YDS (Hiking)GPS Track: Download Map: Google Maps I’ve wanted to scramble Black Rock Mountain for a long time. It just has a cool sounding […]

Turtle Mountain

Turtle Mountain became my first scramble of 2005 on a gorgeous spring-like Saturday morning in early March.

Galwey, Mount

Mount Galwey is an excellent scramble in Waterton Lakes National Park in southern Alberta. I thought it deserved its difficult rating simply because a slip on the crux would have been very painful.

Yamnuska, Mount

Mount Yamnuska is a very fun, fast mountain. It is right in the way of the warm Chinook winds so often it is one of the first summits to be clear of snow.

Moose Mountain

Niko’s first summit! While Hanneke and KC were gone to Manitoba for a wedding, Niko and I hiked his first mountain on a nice sunny, warm 30 degree day in August.

Gap Mountain

Friday afternoon found me scrambling up this short but enjoyable mountain. I thought for sure I would run into a bear given my record this year so I made plenty of noise on the lower slopes! 

Baldy, Mount

I was determined to bag a peak this weekend after three weekends of nothing. The problem was that there was a ton of snow in the hills so I knew that I would be climbing something that I’d done before.

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!

Wedge, The

What a beautiful day!! I scrambled all year to enjoy a day like this! Due to a lingering cold for the past 2 weeks the climb was tough.

Tekarra, Mount

It’s fitting that the belle of the ball was the last major summit we tried. After doing Antler Ridge, Curator Mountain, Amber and GR403502 by the Notch we were ready for a real challenge.

Door Jamb & Loder Mountain

This was a surprising scramble. It was a lot more fun than I expected it to be. My sister was out for a few days and being from Manitoba she has never climbed a mountain before.

Lawrence Grassi, Mount

There are no major difficulties on this moderate scramble – there is a good trail up the spine and to the summit.

East End of Rundle (EEOR)

East End of Rundle was a fun scramble. We were in a bit of a hurry because once again the weather was against us.

Buller Mountain

Buller was a very fun mountain. It isn’t scrambled that often and there is no clear trail to the summit. Part of the scramble was bushwhacking and part of it was clear climbing on shitty scree and slab slopes.

Indefatigable, Mount

Indefatigable is the first mountain that I scrambled as a lead. Steve and I summitted on our first try in the fall of 1999.
