Trip Report

Foolishly I decided that if Sunwapta Peak was in shape for scrambling two weeks ago, and since it's even higher than Tangle Ridge, I would have no problems what-so-ever on Tangle. To be fair, I was aware that temperatures were going to be very warm and the snow would be going isothermal already early in the day. I was also aware that the Columbia Icefields area had gotten some snow over the past week but being an eternal optimist I was of the opinion that the objective was going to be a cakewalk.
