View from Loder Peak

Loder Peak and Door Jamb Mountain
Kananaskis, Alberta
December 13, 2003

The ascent of Loder Peak and Door Jamb Mountain is an easy scramble, but more interesting than one would expect because of unusual rock formations and a variety of scenery. We parked at the same spot used for the Jura Creek trail and headed up the ridge. After passing both Loder and Door Jamb we continued along the ridge as far as we felt comfortable with before turning around. We returned the same.
