The Tit
Formerly Squaw's Tit
Kananaskis
, Alberta
June 15, 2003

The day after we ascended the South Peak of Charles Stewart and gazed down on the summit of The Tit, we went on to set foot on that summit.

This was an enjoyable scramble although there was more routefinding on the approach than I expected. Next time I would take the creekbed and avoid the bushwhacking! Once on the ridge it was an enjoyable scramble to the summit. Instead of following the ridge all the way back, we dropped down to the gully after leaving the summit before retracing our steps back (see map).
