Mount Engadine
Kananaskis, Alberta
July 6, 2003

Much of the ascent is enjoyable scrambling, but be prepared for a lot of route-finding, often backtracking to get around cliff bands and overhangs. After summiting, we descended via the west-facing gully as recommended but we ran into a narrow waterfall drop-off. The next gully east was also too steep to downclimb and we ended up on the second gully over. Next time, I'll go back the same way or try a gully further west.
