I really gotta come back here in the summer, looks like it would be gorgeous. Decided to make it out here before the road closes Dec 1. Hit the trail during a chinook, while warm, it did make for a strenuous slog through the snow. Didn't have enough time in the day to make the full summit but got to the South summit. Great views of Calgary and mountains to the Southwest. Could not locate the new trail down the middle, had to take the old trail that cuts to the North, which added distance to my plan.

Excessive amount of bear droppings, got some on my nice new boots. Wish they'd pick up after themselves.
