Gap Mountain
Kananaskis, Alberta
July 28, 2002

Gap Mountain is a nice, short scramble. We avoided the usual route that crosses the exposed gully (as per Alan Kane's book). Instead, we easily scrambled up a gully on right side and then traversed left to get back on the route.

Dinah (right) hikes up the ridge as a fellow scrambler (left) descends. Later we learned it was Sonny Bou whom knew from the RBM forum but we hadn't yet met.
