Kona at prominent cliff band above the quarry on east end of Grotto April 2nd. Lawrence Grassi, Ha Ling, Rundle across Bow Valley and Canmore behind. Below, view to main summit of Grotto (this high point of our hike isn’t the best approach to the summit, the left skyline ridge via the Bataan climbing area is more direct).
