Heart Mountain and Grant MacEwan Peak
April 23, 2005
This is a short, enjoyable scramble although you may find yourself sharing the mountain with dozens of others. We followed the usual counterclockwise loop route. A good beginner's scramble.
Postscript: A year after climbing Heart Mountain's "second summit," as it was called, was named Grant MacEwan Peak.
