I decided early on in 2008 that it was time I bagged a few of the Kane peaks in Jasper National Park. In the span of two weeks I've now completed over half of them! Indian Ridge and The Whistlers were my latest Jasper peaks. I shared the pleasure with two nephews and two brother-in-laws on June 30 2008.
After quickly bagging Allison it was time to beat the approaching storm up and down Window Mountain. On hindsight doing the exposed and loose traverse from Allison to Window Mountain in a rush was not the best idea I've ever had - but oh well!
Mount Ward was an enjoyable scramble in the Crowsnest Pass area. It presented very few difficulties and was actually quite easy to find! Just remember that it's the logging road at the bottom of a very long hill to the left and you can't miss it. We actually walked all the way up the darn road but I would recommend taking a vehicle with some clearance or your bike.
Tecumseh doesn't seem like a very popular mountain. It hasn't seen a whole lot of ascents over the past few years and I really don't know why. I found it to be quite enjoyable. Of course that could be because we had such nice weather on it compared to the other mountains. We walked up the access road (well most of the way on the right road - don't ask).
Third time lucky! Finally I managed to summit Sentry Mountain after two previously unsuccessful attempts. On hindsight this is not a mountain that is really suited to off-season scrambling simply because of the exposure on the ridge.
Allison Peak was probably one of the quickest summits I've ever stood on - a quick dash and stand and then back to Window Mountain! There was a line of thunderstorms moving towards us from the west and I am really freaked about rain / hail and lightening while being stuck on an exposed ridge so we even forgot to take pictures of this one.
