Wanted a great view but an easy day out. Well, this must be the best seat in the house for the money!! A lot easier than Mt. Rundle I did 3 days earlier. Largely a hike with good scree near the top; the slope to the summit is longer than it seems though. I had clear skies and took a LOT of pictures. The panorama is simply outstanding!! I wore pretty much one layer all day; even on the summit it took a while before I put on my fleece.

Lazy day out, something for the family and dog. The views are why you do this one, but good luck finding a totally clear day. If you are a photographer, go in the morning hours. My optional descent can be fast and furious. Kane gives this 4-7 hours in the book. Even with my non-climbing crew (wife and dog), we did it in 4:20. Cheers!
