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.

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