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.
I woke up at 0315 on Saturday morning, August 14 2010 eager to drive to the Marble Canyon camp ground and a bushwhack up Haffner Creek. OK, I wasn't exactly eager, but I did wake up! I arrived at the parking lot around 06:00 and by 06:30 our party of four was starting up Haffner Creek. I was joined by So, Andrea and Eric for this adventure.
From Hawkins to Lineham is a bit of a blur in my memory banks. I blame it on the wind which was absolutely relentless. Honestly, Waterton would be so much more enjoyable without it! The route was obvious and easy between Hawkins and Lineham.
On September 3 2005 I dragged my brother, Rod and two of my cousins, Tony and Jon up and around the Hawkins Horseshoe in Waterton National Park. It was a clear but extremely windy day. I must admit that all of them performed admirably, especially my brother who was on about 2 hours of sleep due to a screwed up Air Canada flight.
On September 24th, 2005 the RMBooks Group or "Kane Troopers" got together for another group scramble. This time we found ourselves meeting in the Cameron Lake parking lot in Waterton National Park at 07:30.
