East Ridge of The Fist
Kananaskis, Alberta
February 2, 2003

Dinah and I joined the Hostel Outdoor Group to snowshoe up the East Ridge of The Fist. After gaining the ridge a few people were uncomfortable with continuing to a higher point and stayed back while the rest of of us pushed on. We climbed until the grade became too steep to safely continue. Instead of retracing our steps back, we dropped down the southeast slopes and headed back to our car.
