Mount Kidd, South Peak
Kananaskis
, Alberta
October 20, 2001

Since recent snowfalls had blanketed the mountains and made scrambling difficult, Dinah Kruze, Anita Jelinski and I decided to climb the South Peak of Mount Kidd. The South Peak is only slightly lower than Mount Kidd, the highest summit, but it's also less technical. After hiking up the main trail, we missed the side trail but had no trouble going up a gully and getting to the treeline below the ridge. It was a long day and we were constantly slipping and falling on the snow-covered rocks, but we were able to summit. On the return, we saved time by taking a shortcut back to the trail.
