Ha Ling Peak

My first mountain hike in the Canadian Rockies. Dizzying views of Canmore far below. Weather changed quickly on top and descended in a hail storm. Learned that day how suddenly conditions can change and how exposed one can be above treeline.

Back on top  Sucess!

First summit in a long time. We did the hike. Watched some rock climbers rap from the summit very cool!

Trail  Sucess!

Something to do during an unseasonable summer snowstorm. There was maybe 2" of snow at the trailhead, and some knee-deep drifts on top, with crunchy ice on the rocks. Nice views to the southwest on the way up, but not much to be seen from on top.

You always remember your first!  Sucess!

My first peak in the Rockies. This hike ensnared many of us into wondering what else could be climbed

NE Face  Sucess!

Summited via the 11 pitch NE Face on a glorious summer day in August. Spectacular.

Enjoyable Hike  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I hiked Ha Ling during September long weekend. Perfect day for the hike. I would say this is a good climb for conditioning. Using the main path this hike is easy/light moderate. The view is amazing at the top. Great mountain!

Views are Incredible  Sucess!

With my wife, although she stayed at the col and waited for me, the views are great! Truly a fun climb using the "normal route" but I would call this an easy/moderate, not an easy climb. Was pretty darn windy and cold but clear skies provided wonderful views. A lot of elevation gain for a short hike.

Ha Ling! ( worth the view )  Sucess!

Awsome hike! As a matter of fact, my profile picture is of me at the peak.

Hike Route  Sucess!

We hike this summit so many times, and I think this was the second peak hiked since we are in Canada.

NE Face  Sucess!

We climbed the NE face - had a great day and perfect weather. 12 short pitches in 4 hours!

Classic Scramble  Sucess!

Jim, Cooper and I hiked & scrambled the normal route up the west side. Fantastic easy scramble. Also tagged the next small summit to the South, Miner's Peak and the 3 tiny unnamed spires west of there.

Normal  Sucess!

Super busy peak. Awesome summit views. Bagged Miners Peak afterward.

NE ridge  Sucess!

Fun route. Definitely worth the time for the positions along the route despite rather unremarkable climbing.

Fun and Easy  Sucess!

This was my first climb out of Kananaskis and was pumped to do it. I took my girlfriend, her friend and cousin up it for their first climb. Its a super easy climb with great views of Canmore, AB and the Bow and Spray Lakes Valley. Like most people have posted there was tons of people and dogs too. Great beginner mountain.

Crowded  Sucess!

Ha Ling was pretty populated on the last day of the labour day long weekend. I broke with tradition and opted for speed instead of taking lots of pictures, etc. Vehicle to vehicle in 2 hours, 20 minutes. For whatever that proves...

A nice scramble as summer nears its end... short and easy.

Cold day  Sucess!

Cold day out but felt good to be doing something instead of being cooped up because of the cold.

Wow  Sucess!

My first summit in the Canadian Rockies. Climbed with my sister. I was totally blown away by these mountains. The hike is simple, with an incredible view down the face on the other side.

Scramble route  Sucess!

Climbed this Canmore peak in the year I was suffering from terrible knee problems. Very slow to ascent, even slower to descend. Windy, but warm and clear at the summit. The route is short, but really steep, making it a knee killer. I could barely drive my standard afterwards!
