Crowsnest Mountain
Crowsnest Pass, Alberta
August 4, 2001

Crowsnest Mountain is fine scramble if you wish to share the trail with dozens of others as we did. There was a lineup at the chain and falling rock from so many people posed a hazard. Avoid doing this on a long weekend! This is such a short trip, that we opted to explore the col between Crowsnest and the Seven Sisters after descending partway down. (For more photos and a movie see my 2007 trip.)
