Grotto Mountain
Kananaskis, Alberta
March 13, 2004

Grotto Mountain provides a good workout in early season when other peaks are still snowbound. I've been up it a few times using both routes. Here Dinah and I climbed it using the direct route. It's steeper than the ACC route, but the immense cliffs make it more interesting.
