Only made it to the first summit (North peak) due to weather, but this on its own was spectacular! The views from the top are some of the best you’ll get in the front ranges, and the scramble up in the tight chimney just before the top is one of the coolest bits of scrambling in the Banff area. Took about 6 1/2 hours round trip.

One of my favorite scrambles! This is one of the most beautiful places you could go in Banff and it's extremely close to town.
It's a relatively technical scramble if you're planning to summit any or all the peaks.

Beautiful Dec. day for a hike. About -2 C. Bare trail for first 1/4, light snow/ice second quarter, started getting deep snow on third quarter and decided to turn back there as I saw fresh cougar prints in the snow. Not sure about difficulty. Maybe should be med/hard? 3 level rating system can give false ratings!
