Rae, Mount

Sean and I left Calgary around 8am for a late start up Mt. Rae on a sunny July Saturday morning. Originally we were going to climb Mt. Chester but since that entailed a very dusty ride down the Spray Lakes road and I had just hand-washed the beast I decided to use a shallow excuse to climb a mountain that has piqued my interest for a while already.

 

Olympic Summit

Mount Allan is probably one of the closest you can get to a scramble and still call it a hike! I've done this one twice now - and loved it both times. Awesome views and a two-summit day make this one very highly recommended. On the way up Mount Allan you summit Olympic Summit, which is kind of a fail since it's only a minor bump. Oh well. I'll take easy summits any time I can! :)
