Mount Lawson
Kananaskis, Alberta
August 30, 2003

Dinah and I had trouble finding the right drainage and floundered a bit in the trees before getting on track. But once in the gully the route unfolded well enough. Above the treeline, a long climb up loose rock awaited us. We were glad to break out onto the summit ridge. A short ridge walk brought us to the top of Mount Lawson.
