Mount Burstall
Kananaskis, Alberta
August 9, 2002

A short trip that offers a variety of challenges and great views. Difficult and exposed, it's not for beginners. The point at which you leave the trail was farther than I expected. The trail is faint but there is a small cairn (175268).

After going over the ridge, there's not much of a trail on a ledge given the exposure but it's enough

Same as above but taken farther along the trail
