Grizzly Peak
Kananaskis, Alberta
September 14, 2002

We attempted Mount Evan-Thomas but it became too difficult and exposed for us. Following the west ridge as we did turned out to be a bad idea. We turned around after we got 350 m higher than Grizzly's 2500-metre peak. So we climbed Grizzly Peak instead. It's an easy hike and very short.

Dinah and Kari shared a cave (mouse over to see inside) about 30 minutes into our trip


We traversed the slope until we were able to gain the saddle on the left
