Kidd, Mount North

What a day! With the weather reports predicting a perfect scrambling day on Saturday, Sonny and I hooked up to do the north peak of Mount Kidd.

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.

Fable, Mount

Fable has the reputation of being a long and boring hike with only partially worthwhile views once at the top. Well, I must have picked the right day because it was a fantastic outing for me!

Narao Peak

Five of us pushing our heart rates into the stratosphere on a snowy, windy day on yet another slope in the Canadian Rockies. We’ve all done this before. Many times.

Middle Sister (Hope Peak)

I wanted to finish the “scramble sisters” (Faith and Hope) this year and I just managed to squeak this one in as the fall scrambling season moves to a close.

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.

Chester, Mount

After bagging Tyrwhitt and Pocaterra the day before, Jon, Kev and I were ready for something a little tamer on this particular day.

Tower, The

On a beautiful, sunny, late August day we set off with five guys to scramble The Tower in K-Country near Rummel Lake.

Nestor, Mount

After a scramble when I think back to it, I only have fragments. I think it might be because of the effort expended or maybe the adrenaline prevents a smooth cognitive flow. Whatever it is – what follows resembles a poem but is really the way I remember the Mt. Nestor scramble.

Rae, Mount

Sean and I left Calgary around 8am for a late start up Mt. Rae on a sunny July Saturday morning.

Disrespectful Name (ST)

Sean and I did this scramble on a perfect scrambling day. The sun was out for some of the time, it snowed a bit, rained a bit and generally just did the mountain weather thing.

Rimwall, The

Hanneke and I always look forward to the days that we get together in the hills. This one was a double bonus because we shipped the kids off on Friday night and attended a Christmas party!

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.

Grotto Mountain

Grotto Mountain was the mountain that almost didn’t happen! Jeff was very tired for this one but I managed to drag him right to the top.

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.
