Scrambling Routes
Easy with one moderate step. A bit of bush, a little scrambling and oodles of pleasant ridge walking above tree line sum up this loop. The trip starts and ends in Alberta, but the finest portion crosses briefly into British Columbia. Impressive peaks in nearby Glacier Park, Montana, are your companions. Try this trip from late June on. Kane, Scrambles in the Canadian Rockies page 46
