The app is definitely a bit misleading. I don’t think it would be wise to attempt this as a summer hike in June. And it is located north of Lake Louise on highway 93–listing it as near Field, B.C. is not accurate. Also, we took our dog up there and she was fine—not sure where the no dogs part come from .

Definitely a great scramble. Views are far superior to Cirque Peak. And very few people on the trail.

A strenuous but fantastic hike. I would say about 90 % scrambling. The view is incredible.
