Grotto Mtn. (1425 m elev gain)


Kona on Grotto summit on a cloudy mid-June day after ascending by the Bataan climbing wall trail. Summit cairn behind Kona has fallen or been taken apart so we rebuilt it – see below (Canmore and Bow Valley behind with Lady Macdonald at distant right).


Below, nice view of Three Sisters on way up.
