Junction Hill II
Kananaskis, Alberta
March 27, 2010

Our ascent of Junction Hill was a rehash of our 2004 trip except that we did the loop in reverse, ascending the SE Ridge and descending the South Ridge. The counterclockwise loop seemed to offer slightly better views.

After going up the lower slopes, we reach a ramp that leads to the southeast ridge.

Both the false summit and the true summit (right) have cairns.
