Ascent Trip Report

Club trip with Nancy Lloyd and 4 other Mountaineers. Packed snow and ice on last 1200' of ascent. Lots of icicles from cliffs. After a week of freezing weather a warm from was moving in. Cloudy, short rain shower to begin, temps mid 30's. Not very crowded- maybe 10 other groups. Trail was very rocky in spots. 6-1/2 hours car to car- got back in time for Banff Film World Tour showing that evening.
