View to SE of “Three Finches”. Kona’s “grandad” traversed these peaks on a circuitous way to Mt. Arethusa in October 1988. Glenn Naylor, Kananaskis Park warden, had left 3 registers on these peaks Aug 7, 1988 and named them for the hundreds of grey-crowned rosy finches he saw in the cirque on the way up.
