We tried Mount Lawrence Grassi on November 11 but we were turned around by high wind and very cold temperatures at the top. This time Sean, Taylor and I managed to get to the summit. There are no major difficulties on this moderate scramble - there is a good trail up the spine and to the summit.
Another beautiful day in the Rockies. This time it was just Jon, Kev and me. We got to the Highwood Pass around 0900 and proceeded down the path to the Grizzly Col. The trail was in excellent condition and after a pleasant hour or so we were ready to tackle the scree slog to the summit of Tyrwhitt.
On a beautiful, sunny, late August day we set off with five guys to scramble The Tower in K-Country near Rummel Lake. I've done the snowshoe to Rummel Lake a few times in the winter but I've never gone in the summer before. The walk to the lake is a pleasant stroll through some old logging roads and a nice trail over a forested ridge.
Sean and I did this scramble on a perfect scrambling day. The sun was out for some of the time, it snowed a bit, rained a bit and generally just did the mountain weather thing! We started off by parking on the wrong end of Bow River Dr. but eventually we found the right place and headed for the peak. After a long winter of no scrambling our heart rates went through the roof quite quickly!
