Trip Report

When Phil and I set out to scramble Pipestone Mountain, near the Red Deer Lakes and Drummond Icefield on the eastern edge of the Skoki area in Banff National Park, we had no idea how confusing finding and naming the darn summit would be! indecision In the end we had to settle on a rather odd arrangement that I'm sure will not satisfy everyone but makes sense to us.
