Trip Report

On Thursday, March 12 2009 Bill Kerr, Wietse Bylsma, Kevin Papke and I set out to clear Kev's head after a personal loss, the manner of clearing being a nice back country ski up some Wapta Peak. It's been almost 2 years since I was last on the Wapta since I didn't get up there at all in 2008 for some reason. I was also looking forward to finally bagging another peak for 2009 - my record of peak bagging in 2009 has been dismal so far!
