Wow  Sucess!

Jagged, impossibly-steep spires? THREE spires? This sounded like a dream come true. And despite tackling Edith in shoulder season with a fresh coat of snow I'd stand behind that description.

I will say the usual advice seems to get flipped in winter: our ascent onto the icy north summit was the most nerve-wracking, while the entirety of the south summit was a piece of cake, having received more sunlight

North Peak  Sucess!

8 hours round trip from trail head. Snow made it a bit slick just below the key hole.

South Ridge (II 5.4)  Sucess!

Interesting route with Dow. The alpine book said to expect something like 9 hours roundtrip, but we did it in about 6 (including an hour spent looking for something I lost near the summit).

Great day  Sucess!

North Summit. Fun bit of climbing at the end. More room on top than I expected. recommend this one to anyone. Guide book says its moderate to difficult. I would put easy to moderate. Last part looks difficult till you get into it. Goes easy if you take off your pack. Cheers William

Scared *&^%less  Sucess!

Perhaps it was because I was soloing, and out here on my bicycle on a tour from Calgary to Vancouver. Or perhaps it was the loose rock, but this summit made me nervous!

3 peak traverse  Sucess!

late start and it was burning hot hiking in the sun. A long approach for the short sections of scrambling (2 chimney for north summit and couple moves for the south summit). I guess I was just expecting more but I am just glad there was hands on scrambling. Found the south summit to be eaiser to ascend than the north summit. The mountain is loose in general and require extra concentration for traversing the mildly exposed ledge on route to south summit. Good view of Mt. Louis at the pass.

3 Peak Traverse  Sucess!

Climbed on the Summer Solstice. Interesting and varied scrambling on the traverse - a classic scramble, and definitely one to repeat!

Route Climbed: Three Peak Traverse Date Climbed: June, 2004  Sucess!

I did the North summit of Edith solo in August 2003 and all three summits with a small group in June 2004. This is a laid back meandering objective, 4 hours (Dow-solo speed) round trip for just the North summit and a couple more for the middle and south summits.

In 2004, there was only a summit book on the South summit. I had signed one on the North summit the previous year. I saw sheep in 2003 and a well habituated white tailed buck in 2004 (in one of the most picturesque meadows in the Canadian Rockies). In 2005 I found a cat kill on an avalanche slope and observed a pair of Hairy Woodpeckers and a Mountain Bluebird.
