Cirque Peak
Banff National Park, Alberta
September 13, 2003

Cirque Peak is an easy trip with great views. It's mostly a hike except for a cliff band low on the ridge and the very top. Snow made things a bit difficult when we scrambled to the summit. Afterwards, Dinah and I descended to the pass and climbed partway up the other side to get a good view of Cirque Peak.
