I'd been saving Mount Whymper for a solo outing when I didn't have a whole bunch of time. On Wednesday, September 30 2009 I found myself dropping the kids off at school at 08:00 with a full day ahead of me and nothing much to do (still looking for a job in a very soft market after taking the summer off...). I hastily decided on Mount Whymper as an objective worthy of the day and 'sped' off towards Kootenay National Park.
