Bald Eagle Peak (Anû Kathâ Îpa)
Formerly Squaw's Tit
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 15, 2003

Distance: 9.2 km
Cumulative Elevation Gain: 1280 m

When Dinah and I ascended the South Peak of Charles Stewart, we gazed down on the summit of Bald Eagle Peak and wondered about climbing it. So the very next day, we did. Joining us in climbing Bald Eagle Peak was Dale.

Bald Eagle Peak was an enjoyable scramble, although there was more routefinding on the approach than I expected. Next time I would take the creekbed and avoid the bushwhacking! Once on the ridge, it was an enjoyable scramble to the summit. Instead of following the ridge all the way back, we dropped down to the gully after leaving the summit before retracing our steps back.
