Kona on Mt. Lawrence Grassi (1020m gain)


Kona on Mt. Lawrence Grassi in late May. Ship’s Prow¬†Mtn. in front of Three Sisters. Lougheed peaks behind. All scrambles except Little Sister (a loose hard to protect rock climb.) Old Goat Mountain at right (a very long and complicated scramble).

View to Mt. Rundle below. Highest point is a very long scramble from Canmore end. Ha Ling is out of view below.



Kona on Mt. Rundle (1577 m elev gain)


Kona (2-1/2 yrs) having a well-deserved rest on Mt. Rundle ascended from Bow Falls parking lot in Banff. Cascade Mtn at left, Lake Minnewanka and Mt Aylmer, highest point behind the lake. The true summit of Mt. Rundle is further along the ridge, a climb from this end but a long scramble from the Canmore end with one difficult chimney just before the top (photographer did this in 1999.)
