Mount Rundle
Banff, Alberta
July 5, 2005

A long but pleasant, easy scramble. Best done in the early or late season when there are few people. My first two attempts in June fell short of the summit because of snow, but I was successful at the beginning of July. Since I had been up the mountain so many times I concentrated on getting up and down quickly (5:15 including 15 minutes spent on the summit). I wished I had taken my time and stopped to take photos. But drawing from from my attempts with Dinah in 2002 and 2004, I was able to add some photos.
