    The scramble is just a long hike until the final ridge to the true summit. They found a body in 2003 who had slipped off this section. Good local repeat for beginners. I have gone up the scramble...

    A great peak with a short, direct approach which starts directly from the outskirts of Canmore. We ascended in just over 3 hours, spent 45 minutes at the summit and descended in just over an hour....
