    First tried climbing Mt. Rundle in 1979 and then in 2005. The route gets to be a slabby, gravel-covered slog when you get to the Dragon's Back.And then turns to a tedious, talus/scree climb for the...

    The scramble up the east end of the mountain is pleasant and non-strenuous, plus the views from the summit are spectacular.

    1974 I was 18, it was the most amazing experance. I have allways wanted to go back and to stay up over night to watch the sun come up. To be at the top of a piece of land that once layed at thebottom...

    I climbed this with the Sun Valley ski team. This hike has great views from the summit. It took 2 hours up and 1 1/2 down. Most all of the scrambling is on scree, no cliffs so not very technical at...

    Climbed to peak on a wonderfull fall day, clear,warm, no other hikers. Long way up but even longer on way back. Worth the trip but never again for this mountain. 9 hour trip, 1 foot snow on top with...

    Good day for scrambling - started just after noon. Kind of cloudy, not too hot. Had a great companion that made the climb a lot more enjoyable... it would have been a fairly boring hike otherwise.

    4 of us hiked on a cloudless day when we started. A high celing of clouds when we reached the top, but still very nice weather. Could see as far you possibly can. Mt. Asssibone in BC looks awesome...
  • Log #13754 - by Catherine Raymond on July 26, 2004
    This has been one of the most rewarding hike so far from me...could not make it to the summit, because I sat down too long contempling the view...and thought too much about how I would get back down...
  • Log #13755 - by Barbara & Matthew on July 25, 2004
    We honeymooned in Banff 12 years ago. When we got back home, we adopted a kitten whom we named Rundle. We've been back to Banff once since, and hope someday to return to climb her daunting namesake...

  • Log #13757 - by Ron Clipperton on Dec 25, 2003
    Living here I have the opportunity to hike and climb all the peaks that surround the town, and have scaled them all. I enjoy Rundle the most with its varied terrain. This year I made it to the top...
  • Log #13758 - by James Crawley on Dec 14, 2003
    3.5 hours up and 2.5 hours down. VERY enjoyable hike. Nice and sunny on the way up and blizzard at the top.
  • Log #13759 - by Michael Metz on Sep 29, 2003
    What a hike!!! 6 hours to the top, and 3 hours down. And a Good Pint in Canmore. Very few souls on the mountain. Well worth the effort.
  • Log #13760 - by Sharon Rundle-Moore on Sep 16, 2003
    I can't wait to get out to Banff this fall to climb my "family" mountain. It's been talked about for years by uncles, aunts and cousins and finally some of the Rundle's from Ontario are...

    A much better weekend to do this peak than last weekend. (had to come back and bring my son). Beautiful views of the Bow Valley.
  • Log #13762 - by Bill Sutton on Sep 15, 2003
    Might have gone up a little early. The snow storm at the top was a little chilly, but we still had fun. Gotta love that dragon's back.
  • Log #13763 - by Lawrence and Lisa on Aug 19, 2003
    This definitely pushed our resolve. It took us 2 hours alone to get passed the loose scree. We knew we would miss seeing the view from the top because of the forest fires but were determined to...

    I am 63 years of age.My nephew and myself have looked at and decided to climb Mount Rundle for a few yearsand I have wanted to climb this peak since I was a child.I have bad arthritis in my left foot...

    An easy scramble with good views of the Bow Valley. "To travel, to experience, to learn - that is to live." Tenzing Norgay, from Man of Everest

    Rundle was a nice day outing with some wicked scenery. My parents had done it two weekends in a row and they are old.
  • Log #13767 - by Jeff Skrocki on July 14, 2003
    This summit was my first shot at a Canadian Rockies Scramble. The hike to the tree line was quite tedious with the never-ending switchbacks. Here I left my wife and continued up the final scree...
  • Log #13768 - by Will Beddows on June 13, 2003
    Long slog to get above the tree line - good point for a break before you start the long bent-double slog up the right side of the gully. Very loose and tough going on the scree for the last 100...

    I haven't summited this peak as of yet, I want to plan a traverse of the entire 8 km or so of rundle..either east to west or vice versa. Has anyone attempted this? Any thoughts?

    It was with the Red Deer College X-Country team,led by Brian Stackhouse & Don Wales.
  • Log #13771 - by chris manders on Jan 23, 2003
    After climbing Edith Cavell, Chinaman's Peak, Cascade, and LeFroy, I still prefer Rundle for the eastward view from the summit. If you traverse the summit ridge eastward, you will come across a small...

    This was one of my first summits. After we got down, my friend and I drove back to Calgary, and all we talked about was our summit, and what a fantastic day it was. I was very pleased, giggling like...

    April is usually not the best time to hike Rundle but being a bit anxious to start another hiking season we slogged through snow (in the trees)and scrambled to the top. Poles were essential on this...
  • Log #13775 - by Craig Knelsen on Apr 01, 2000
    This easy scramble (primarily a long walk-up) is a long day. The first few hours is a long grind up switchbacks in enclosed forest with few views. Finally you reach the central gully (large...
