Mount Kidd
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 13, 2002

Mount Kidd is mostly a slog with limited views during the ascent. We should have done it earlier in the season when snow would have made a quicker ascent and descent. It was 30° on our trip and we soon ran out of water. It's not a trip I fondly remember because of the scree and the heat.

The last 300 m is on loose scree

To the south, this small peak is unofficially called "The Spoon Needle"
