Its blocked by another building, but I can see it up the street. Not great, but not bad either.

It looks like you have to log in to view it.

MOUNT aineer


I take it the one in yellow is named "Mount" and the one in black (with tongue hanging from mouth) his "Aineer"?

I am sure we are all jealous of Chief's pictures and lifestyle but I also like Boruts and Barrys views. JamesW views of Mount Begbie from Revelstoke are good as well.

Here is a high res interactive panorama of the mountain view from Calgary(not mine but I like it).

http://www.scramblesandsummits.com/NoseHillPano/NoseHillPano.aspx

It is on a slow server so the annotations -mountain labels take a while to load so be patient as you zoom in as it gives you more detail if you wait. A toggle in the lower right gives full screen.
Thirty minutes to one hour gets me to the base of most of these. Enjoy.
