Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2002


Wonderfull scramble. Short, but the final knife edged ridge was quite exciting provided you stay on the ridge crest. Descended the gully below the summit. A couple of interesting spots but from what I can remember everything went smoothly.

EricKSouth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006
We got to the top without too much trouble. It was completely dry the entire way--even at the summit.

We tried to come down a different way than we went up, and took a bad gully because it continually dove down steeper and steeper on scree, turning into horrible chossy rotten rock at a 50° slope. It took a couple of hours just to descend this section!

Great climb though-- only if i did it again, i don't think i would want to descend the same way we did.

This was my third attempt of Storm Mountain. I was determined to conquer the mountain this time--better third time lucky rather than three strikes and you're out. I am pleased to say that the former was realized. I required about five hours to summit, four hours for the return. See my trip report for further details.

After a week of the wettest weather I have ever seen in the Canadian Rockies, the most I could muster was this popular scramble in the Highwood area, and I still got snowed on! I had mini storms moving in and out on me, so my views were limited. There was a summit register in 2004. On descent, I chose to cross over a precarious snow covered notch to gain the west ridge and was dealing with 2 feet of fresh powder. I might want to revisit the mountain when it is dry, but great outing just the same.
