    The approach along the road is boring and one quickly wishes it was open to public. The views aren't terribly exciting, but there were some interesting formations, fossils and wild flowers on this scramble. Also saw some...

    Route starting on Lake Louise (Banff). Well marked path to first summit ( little Beehave). From there a path on your left (not well marked) will take you to Mt. St. Piran (2700 m). Only the last part is not clearly marke...

    This is not a very popular scramble and once off the hiking trail, route finding can be a bit tricky up to Cegnfs. From Cegnfs to Mount Murray, the route is pretty obvious. This GPS track involves some difficult scrambli...

    The approach involves going over lots of fallen trees and a ton of scree. It's a slog, but the views are fantastic.

    Most people have done this trail on the way to the Memorial Lakes. The only difference with that one and this is the added scramble to the summit of Bogart Tower. So a good percentage of this route is a hike and a beauti...

    Mount Cautley is a steep hike, but we tried to combine it with Wonder Peak which would be moderate scrambling with some tricky route finding. We got very close to the summit of Wonder Peak but were forced to turn around ...

    This track is not complete, but it shows the scrambling route. There is a lot of elevation gain via switch backs. Hamilton Lake is a nice stop on the way up.

    A popular scramble. The scrambling itself is not that difficult if you stay on the route. The views are absolutely fantastic. There were a ton of mountain goats on this trail too. Definitely one of my favorites.

    A really fun scramble with a really interesting ascent via the headwall overlooking Ross Lake. The ascent line we took was quite fun, but the descent had a lot of loose rock and was a bit slower going.

    Pretty straight forward scrambling, mostly hiking, up until the rock band. There are a couple of ways through and they're marked with cairns. Lots of wildflowers and great views.
