Little Lougheed III
Kananaskis, Alberta
May 4, 2004

After two winter ascents we returned to Little Lougheed in the spring. With little snow, the boulder field was easier to navigate and appeared more impressive. (See our 2001 trip for route details.)

We skirt the base of a cliff band; on the descent we followed the cliff top.


It's easier to travel on the snow than the rocks.
