Ptarmigan Peak Lake Louise Banff Park

Ptarmigan Peak Snow descent – hard overnight freeze so snow was firm for steep part but punchy lower down.

Summit ridge of Ptarmigan Peak, Lake Louise, Banff Park – kicking steps down into notch crux – serious exposure to gully on right and where does cornice start on left?

Bike, hike and alpine snow climb on a good overnight freeze. About 1400 m and 21 km.

The down climb to notch was exposed. See pics.
