Little Lougheed III
Kananaskis, Alberta
May 4, 2004

After two winter ascents we returned to Little Lougheed in the spring. With little snow, the boulder field was easier to navigate and appeared more impressive. (See our 2001 trip for route details.)

Passing boulders

We skirted the base of a cliff band; on the descent we followed the clifftop

It was easier to travel on the snow than the rocks

We passed an icicle

Clouds moved in

There's still lots of ice on the lake
