View from Centre Peak

Mount Edith
Banff National Park, Alberta
July 20, 2002

Gert, Wayne, Dinah and I did the three-peak loop for Mount Edith beginning with the North Peak. There's lots of variety here! Despite the rating of "difficult" for the South Peak, I thought the scrambling was moderate. After ascending the North Peak, we pushed on to do the Centre and South Peaks, and then descended from the Centre-South Col.

Nearby to the northwest is Mount Louis

South-facing chimneys: we went up the left chimney that has brief exposure and
came down the right chimney although it is narrower (mouse over).

Coming down from the south peak, we'll soon be back at the rock flakes

The exposed ledge that avoids the tunnel is actually easy

The photo is not turned around. I'm looking down as Gert, Dinah, and Wayne descended a crack.
