Trip Report

On Saturday, June 3 2006, Raf, Jason, Wietse and I climbed Mount Weed along the Icefields Parkway. Even though Kane doesn't recommend this peak until late July we felt that it would be doable in the current dry conditions. It didn't hurt that Sonny climbed it three weeks earlier either... ;-)

Hi Vern! Always amazed with your postings. In your "pano-summit-2" photo in this album, I believe the lake on LHS is actually Mistaya Lake, not Peyto. Happy scrambling this summer!

Hey Steve! Thanks for the correction - I'm not always known for fact checking my landmark references... :)
