Non success

No success for me on this day. Picked up a severe case of shin splints and or cramps in my left leg 3/4 of the way up. Very hot day and had run the night before in heat. Had to limp down in pain. Will return soon as I had most of the route done. Good decision to go down when I did. Took forever moving slow. Will return as I say in August 2009.

South Face-East Ridge  Sucess!

Only a few days after the snowfall, all the snow had left the mountain. My partner and I climbed Galatea on a perfect, blue sky day. Some of the best views I have ever seen, the clarity was amazing this day.

Route Climbed: South Face-East Ridge Date Climbed: August 25, 2005  Sucess!

After two days of watching the Canmore mountains get slammed with snow at 6500’ on up, I chose to head back into Kananaskis for a look. I had a fantastic summit day. This is a fine objective for a great view, but needs to be respected regarding snow load. A partner and I went in to do it June one year and opted for Fortress as we watched avalanches wipe out the route. The “Elephant Rocks” are one of my favorite places to chill. Chester Lake is not bad itself. Cheers.
