Did to the fake summit (just above the couch and coffee table) July 8- looks like someone has come after some of the reviews as there were orange markers behind the back side of the first cliff that led you through the scree.

It was definitely harder coming down than up- but we are fairly average hikers and just getting our toes wet in the scree scene. The views are beautiful and the trail is away from the hustle and bustle of Banff/canmore - would recommend

Lots of scrambling! If your a big lover of scrambles this hike is for you. It is a loop hike, but most people go in and out. There is some places where having a climbing background comes in handy. :)!

Harder than I expected it to be, a few spots you need to scramble and trail is not well marked.

Nice views, but there were more bugs on this trail than any other hike we have done in Alberta.

Did the loop north to south today, some parts were very scary, my girlfriend has fear of heights and just froze on a few exposed climbing parts.
After the north peak if you keep going to the south peak you'll hit a cliff, this is rock climbing don't try without gear, to descend safely go left on the ridge, you'll see a steep scramble with a path in the bottom leading back into the ridge around the scary rock.
On the way down after the south peak it's all scree not the best scree, but easier than north.

Moderate to difficult depending on how fit/fearless you are. Following the path you get to a fork - to the left is a bit of a scramble and then a downclimb about 15 ft of rockclimbing (not for the faint of heart!), then some more scrambling. To the right is a short walk along a path and then uphill on skree. Both paths then converge to the path that leads to North summit. It was very windy the day we went and so we could not summit safely, but was a fantastic hike nonetheless! Amazing views and a good workout.
