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 final 300' to the summit.
Great view of Cascade to the north. There was a prescribed burn going on in Kananaskis Country the day we scrambled it. Luckily,
winds shifted around midday and blew the smoke towards Calgary.
Climbed Rundle with my wife,Kimberly. Four hours up and three and a half down.
