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 largely a hike, but more interesting than one would expect because of unusual rock formations. We parked at the same spot used for the Jura Creek trail and headed up the ridge. We returned the same.

from going past Door Jamb)

Most of the ridge is a hike

Some easy scrambling sections

Great scenery along the ridge

Interesting rock formations

On the top of Loder Peak. Mount Fable on the right.

We continued along the ridge to find steep but solid rock that was easy to climb

We continued along the ridge but were stopped by a steep slope
