Grizzly Peak
Kananaskis
September 14, 2002

After turning back from an attempt on Mount Evan-Thomas, we climbed Grizzly Peak. It's an easy hike and very short. About thirty minutes in from the trailhead, there's an interesting cave that's worth checking out.

We turned around on Mount Evan-Thomas at this point.

In April 2004, we started hiking up Grizzly Creek but veered off to an area (GR324252)
northwest of the summit of Grizzly Peak. Could this couloir be a scramble route up Grizzly Peak?
There was too much snow for us to try it.
