Ascent Trip Report

This was part of a 4 summit grab, started on the Heart creek trail up towards the well marked signs to Heart mountain. However we completely and accidentally by passed the mountain and came up on the ridge behind Heart Mountain via a chute on the way to Grant MacEwan. This was part of a 4 peak grab we managed to hit Heart on the way back. overall the way up made for some great scrambling some of my favorite so far.
