Remote


 

Dormer Mountain

I’ve scouted, planned and schemed many trips into the eastern Rockies mountains over the years and have started slowly chipping away at the list. It’s a tough area to explore but it’s worth it. Mount McConnell and Cataract Peak are just two examples of what makes these trips worthwhile if you like adventure. Dormer Mountain falls into this category of trips.

McConnell, Mount

Mount McConnell is one of those peaks that got onto my mountain list somehow and just stayed hovering somewhere near the top of it but never seemed to actually get done. Why was it on my list? As one of the most remote and hard to access peaks in Banff National Park with a summit over 10,200 feet high, it is rarely done (we were only the 5th recorded ascent) and gets the explor8ion juices flowing.
