Trip Report

East End of Rundle was a fun scramble. We were in a bit of a hurry because once again the weather was against us. We had clouds swirling furiously above and beside us as we got closer and closer to the summit. I'm kind of paranoid about lightening so we didn't even stay at the summit long enough for a photo!

 

There are no route finding issues thanks to the hordes of people on this peak on any given weekend. The main crux is getting to the bottom of the trail on the busy, dusty road.

[We went up on climber's right and down on the left - this is the view of Canmore off the exposed summit cliff.]

[Ed traverses to the summit.]


[We came down further to the west on less exposed terrain, following an obvious trail.]


[Of course the skies cleared on descent - this is looking towards Ha Ling.]
