Really a great hike. Views were wonderful, trail easy to follow. Wind were really pushing my 105 pound wife around. But she made it up as well. Made it to the summit in 1.5 hours Decended to then go to Windtower but we ended up at Lougheed and that was a climb we couldn't do. Found out that it's a 5.4. Oh well

Solo trip late in the day. A great day out in the mountains, notable for the amazing sunrays streaming through the clouds before sunset.

The forecast was calling for rain. Luckily we didn't have any rain while hiking. In fact, it was nice, calm sunny day for the scramble while the rest of the surrounding mountains had some clouds, guess we lucked out. Rock a bit too loose for my liking on some of the sections we scrambled up.

There is a small parking area off of Spray Lakes Road across from Spurling Creek about 20+km from Canmore. Follow the trail on the left side of a significant drainage that leads to West Wind Pass. Turn left off of the trail well before the pass and hop onto the backside of Rimwall. Stay to the right as you crest out onto a long ridge. This ridge is windy, the kind that pins you down (the summit offers you a reprieve). Traverse over to Rimwall summit to the west. You have several rock bands to climb. The larger one is best ascended on the edge, even though there is some exposure here. There is a summit register.

Two hours from parking to summit here. The decent can do without having to retrace all of your steps. Just angle SE back to the tree line and stay left of a large wash out gully. Enjoy a great view to the east of Wind Tower, Wind Mountain, Mount Lougheed and Mount Allen. Mount Douglas looked great from a distance as always. Astor and Goat are immediately south.
