On Friday, June 30 I headed out early to scramble Mount Edith in Banff National Park. Originally I was supposed to be heading up Copper Mountain but a certain person who I won't name canceled on me. After Dave Stephens canceled on me (!), I was wondering what I should do and thought that Mount Edith was a good choice for a solo scramble.
Sonny sent me an email on Monday saying that he was planning to do a scramble on Friday evening and wondering if I was interested. Duh! Of course I was! Since I had family stuff on Saturday this worked out perfect for me.
On Thursday, July 01 I scrambled Mt. Cory with Sonny, Kelly and Dan. We left Calgary around 7am and summitted about 6 hours later in heavy cloud cover.
After ascending Mount Ball we decided to give Beatrice Peak a go. It seems very minor compared with the bulk of Ball, but it's an impressive height on it's own. It's only 25 meters lower than Stanley Peak.
