We were lucky with perfect clear skies and pleasant temperatures. We started around 8 am and summited by 11:30. Got back to the parking lot at Lake Louise around 2 pm. The trail was snow-free so this was an easy walk-up, so not sure why this is considered a scramble unless you encounter snow on the trail, or get off trail taking shortcuts. We were the first to the top on this day, followed shortly thereafter by a younger couple from Barcelona, Spain. The views of Temple, Deltaform, Haddo, Aberdeen, Lefroy, Victoria, Daly, and Hector are great. If I could return to hike this again, I would choose September when the many larch trees would be golden.
