The ridge connecting Crowfeet Mountain (center) and Mount Henkel (right foreground) is clearly visible. According to J. Gordon Edwards, it's about a mile between the two peaks, with approximately 1,000 feet of elevation loss and gain. The ridge affords wonderful views of the Ptarmigan Lake / Iceberg Lake valley to the west; to the east, a 2,000 foot vertical cliff drops down to Kennedy Lake.
Had the pleasure of watching three different groups of mountain goats traverse Crowfeet's steep east face. It was truly incredible!
