Mount Hood
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 24, 2001

The route for Mount Hood in Scrambles follows King Creek and then ascends the col between Hood and Mount Brock. Our my first attempt, though, we climbed too high above King Creek looking for the sheep trail that Kane suggests. We ended up on the col between Mounts Blane and Brock. I returned with Dale and Dinah, and this time we stuck to King Creek until we were below Hood-Brock Col before starting our ascent. This worked well and we summited Mount Hood.
