Mount Fullerton
Kananaskis, Alberta
June 30, 2003
Distance: 25.7 km
Cumulative Elevation Gain: 1120 m

To reach Mount Fullerton, walk or bike up Elbow trail, hike up Nihahi Creek and then ascend the northeast ridge. Dinah and I decided to walk up the road, which compared with hiking up Nihahi Creek, was pleasant and quick; we were glad to reach the drainage that leads to the ascent ridge. We hiked well up the drainage before finding a good spot to gain the ridge on our right. Once on the ridge, the climb to the summit was straightforward and interesting.
