Ascent Trip Report

A season end scramble up another big, but relatively easy, peak along the continental divide. Storm Mtn. involves a bushwhack and some trudging up scree slopes, before a short but interestingly steep section, and then you top out on a broad summit. NW slopes are the scrambling route; don't verge too closely to the N face cliffs, it's easy to slip over those ledges..
Physically a demanding day but somewhat of a denouement after the exciting climbs up Mt. Chephren and Mt. Niblock earlier in the year. Nice views and some good fall colors in the Bow valley.
