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. 😉

Tangle Ridge

Foolishly I decided that if Sunwapta Peak was in shape for scrambling two weeks ago, and since it’s even higher than Tangle Ridge, I would have no problems what-so-ever on Tangle.

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.

Kidd South, Mount

I had decided on Friday afternoon that I would post something to the web board to see if anyone would be interested in joining me for an attempt at South Kidd the next day, Saturday November 19, 2005.

Turtle Mountain

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

Gap Peak

For some reason this peak became quite popular as of late and a number of scramblers, including me, decided that since the weather has been so nice of late we would get a jump on the season and bag a peak.

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!

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.

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.
