Gap Mountain, Kananaskis – Highwood September 9, 2017

Coming off Gap Mountain- pockets of larches starting to turn.

Careful Moderate down climb. This was exploratory – not necessary – not the crux.



About 770 m and 6.1 km RT.  Upper mountain – Actual scramble section is very short.

Kane crux has some small footholds and exposure but not hard.  Balance moves with exposure.

Rest of scramble has a couple of moderate moves but most could be avoided with route finding and connecting ledges.

Explored the Spirko route which may be easier but less traffic so more loose rock.
