Easy Scramble - East End of Rundle

EEOR is the unofficial name of the east end of the 15km Mount Rundle massif.   Its short gain from Goats Creek trailhead and proximity to Canmore make it a popular objective.  Afterward, we can head to Canmore for a pint and a bite to eat :)

Rating: Easy scramble
Distance: 6 km
Elevation gain: 900 m
Time: 4 - 6 hrs

    Really great meeting everyone on this hike - hope to meet you all again in the future. Thanks for the organising Chris, thanks for the photos Hooi Yee!

    Does anyone know how to group message certain members on this site?

      I think the only way to message people is to click on their name, then "send email". Don't think there's a way to message more than one person at once.

      Hi Autumn - this will be the first MeetUp hike/scramble I have done - I'm not sure how my legs will fair. I will however take my tent (in case) - I have no real plans for sun/mon - so I'm open to ideas.
